What is electricity?
Electricity is made from
the movement of electrons. Every single item in the whole world
is made up of tiny, tiny things called atoms. Electrons are inside
each of these tiny atoms. Electrons are so small that if you
took a million of them, they would barely reach across the top
of a small pin. These electrons have a negative charge causing
them to move from one area to another, creating electricity.
- Electricity flows easily
through metals but not through other materials.
- Electricity can flow when
there is a complete circuit.
- Metals are good electrical
