Keep Safe around Electricity
This online module aims to teach children about electricity and electrical safety. It is ideal for delivery in class via an interactive whiteboard or a computer projector.
The aims and objectives of this module correspond with the SPHE curriculum requirements for 3rd and 4th class in relation to personal safety. There are also elements of this module that correspond to the 3rd and 4th class Science curriculum. The module is therefore most suitable for children in 3rd and 4th class but may also be used as a ‘refresher’ lesson with more senior classes.
Duration: Three 30-40 minute lessons followed by a fourth quiz based lesson.
• Increase the children’s awareness of electrical hazards.
