"This book uses real-world examples to bring the concept of electricity to life in an approachable way. Clearly-written text draws in readers with concrete examples involving familiar, everyday things, such as how electricity is used in the home. The book covers both the history and future of electricity, as well as key figures in its development, such as Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Edison, Michael Faraday, and Nikola Tesla. Major concepts covered include current, circuits, electromagnets, electrical signals in the body, electrons, voltage, batteries, and safety. Full-color photos, a glossary, an index, sidebars, primary source documents, and other creative content enhance the book. It also includes prompts and activities that directly engage students in developing the reading, writing, and critical thinking skills promoted by the Common Core standards."--From publisher.
