Electricity In My Home Science Scavenger Hunt Activity
I created this activity to get my students thinking about the many uses of electricity in our homes. Students use the electricity scavenger hunt worksheet to learn more about the many devices in their homes that use electricity.
Students must determine how the electricity is used. Does the device create heat, sound, light, or motion energy? They also determine which devices can still be used during power outages.
After students return their scavenger hunt forms, you can use them to have small group (or whole class) discussions about sources of electricity and their many uses in our homes. This activity is well-suited for students to do independently or with a parent. This electricity activity is one page in length.

Comments by teachers who used this resource:
"My fourth graders LOVED this as a homework assignment. It also helped them notice that some devices fall under more than one category."
"As simple as this is, I love that it connects a home activity with what we are learning at school in a subject area where I rarely send homework. Thank you for this great idea!!"
"I also gave this as homework! -- it tied nicely to our VA SOLS to bring elec. into changing into heat, light, etc... and identifying objects at home in order to make that all mighty "real world connection"."
"This went along great with my electricity unit! Thanks!"
"Great activating activity for our energy unit!"
