Lesson Plan : Conserving Electricity

Teacher Name:
 Maggie Batacan

 Electricity Power Energy Conserve
 At the end of the lesson, the student(s) should: have basic knowledge on what electricity is and what it can do for us; have an appreciation for it; and know good energy-saving/energy-efficient practices.
 The student(s) will be able to: give practical examples of electricity being used in everyday life; give practical examples of how to save electricity.
 An unplugged electrical appliance (e.g. a lamp), paper (number of sheets correspond to the number of students), coloring materials
 They will be presented with a problem: An electrical appliance (of any kind) will be shown. Even when switched on, it refuses to work. They will try to figure out why. Once they realize that it refuses to work because it is unplugged, they must explain why this is so. This will open up the topic of electricity in a natural manner.
 There will be a discussion on, basically, what electricity is and what it is able to do. They will be asked to give examples that they can see in the classroom. The room will be open to questions.
 Each student will be given a sheet of paper and will be asked to draw an electrical appliance that they see all the time, everyday. They will be asked to show their drawings in front of the class.
Checking For Understanding:
 They will be posed with the earlier problem -the appliance that refuses to work. They will be asked to explain, once again, why it does not work.
 We will review and discuss everything that has been said. Any final questions are welcome.
 Evaluating the students' understanding of the topic will be happening during the discussion itself through observation.
Teacher Reflections:
 Understand that students, although there to learn, can also offer something that can be learned -perhaps, even, something that was evidently obvious to them but not to you, when seen from a different/new perspective.
