Electric Circuits gives 4th and 5th graders an overview of electricity—how it was discovered, how people put it to work, how it works in living organisms, and what scientists are still learning about it. The book opens with the time-honored story of Benjamin Franklin and his experiments which proved that lightning is a form of electricity. Another story tells of the American inventor Thomas Edison, whose practical application of electricity has helped shape the modern world. One section of this book outlines the path that electricity takes from a power plant to the living room. Finally, the book looks at electricity in nature, from electric eels in the water to lightning in the skies.
