Green Mountain Power

Green Mountain Power visited to teach about electrical safety.  They began by using Hazard Hamlet to demonstrate unsafe practices in the environment and in the home.


 

Then the students went outside.  The lineman, Nate climbed pole for them,,
showed them some tools and got in the bucket.  









The students then wrote thank you notes that showed how much they learned. They did an excellent job on these. 

Ask your child what they learned and what they thought was the most important.

Electricity

We have been having a lot of fun learning about electricity.  We started with static electricity, using balloons to conduct experiments. Students used equipment to make open and closed circuits.  They evcntually added a switch to show both an open and closed circuit.  They made conclusions and recorded their work to show what they were learning.

Safi records her information.


Mackenzie, Carly and Kennedy are  making  switches.
Aricin and Zac are making a switch.
Cloe and Fyn are getting their switch to work.
Dale and Caleb are recording their information.
Students shared their electrical knowledge with their little
partners.  The K students were able to make a closed circuit and use a switch with'
the help of the big partners. All students were told to find me to take 
a picture but some may not have.












When students were done with the electricity experiments,
they read to their little partners.
