How is electricity generated?

We are learning to:

  • Write down how electricity is generated

I succeed when I can:

  • Explain renewable and non-renewable ways to generate electricity

Joblist:

  • Starters
  • Notes - how does each work.
  • Advantages and disadvantages of each.

< Renewable and Fossil energy | Energy | Lemon Battery >

Starters
