& Cooking Activity Using Electrical Appliances
We saw wind turbines, solar panels and ovens as well as water generated electricity and examples of nuclear energy reactors. We also saw examples of how animal manure can be manipulated to create energy. There was also ‘simulated electricity consumption in households’ which gives us information on how many watts of electricity are used daily at home.
The students were then given the opportunity to find out about energy for themselves with hands on activities involving magnets, sensory instrumentsand water. They also watched a movie about a family called “Boris (Boros Listrik)”. The students were definitely interested in getting into the home of electricity.
The children had also a chance to explore electrical appliances through baking brownies and making milkshake. The power tools that we used were mixer, oven, and blender. This activity was performed to identify the different ways electricity is used to prepare food and to focus on some appliances used during cooking that need electricity to make them work. The children had a great time working on the appliances while they learnt how to follow instructions and they showed patience and cooperation among themselves.
