Title: Are you CHARGED up? (02/22/10)
Description: Our class is now involved in a Science unit exploring electricity. As we construct different types of circuits safely and carefully, we are taking a look at the world around us. By taking a look at our classrooms and our homes, it is clear that electricity is a big part of our lives.

Think about the following questions:
• Do you think that we depend too much on electricity? Why or why not?
• What do you think life would be like if we didn't have electricity?
• If you were an inventor and created something new, what would you rather see it run on instead of electricity and why? Support your choice with juicy reasons!

This is a great public service announcement with some electrical safety tips.

Of course.. Make sure that you TRIPLE check your blog and your comments for proper capitalization, grammar, punctuation and spelling!

***Remember that a blog is NOT a journal. What you write can and will be viewed by other people, so DO NOT put any sensitive or personal information!***

I think we use electricity too much because its powering almost everything.

OHHHHH we need electricity more than anything in the whole world. Life would be "IN THE DARK". Thats why we need it. Lets use the sun (when its not snowing!!!) solar power is a great way to power all our games, computers,lights, and T.V..

I think we rely too much on electricity.Our life is much better because of electricity. Life would be so boring without it. Nothing would be working in your house like your DS, your microwave, T.V. or refridgerator.It would take forever to make a fire,just to make a piece of toast. You would have to get ice to keep things cold and you would have to do everything before the sun goes down beacause then you don't have power in your house for light.

If I were an inventor, I would use water power

to move things up like a crane or to power up a rollercoaster.

I think we depend on electricity too much. I think this because every day people are using electricity for homework or watching TV and also playing video games and doing many other things. I think if we didn't have electricity we wouldn't have any light, we wouldn't have a way to contact people and we wouldn't be able to check e-mail. If I could create any thing I would create a soccer machine and a soccer ball would fly out and you would kick the soccer ball. I would have this game run on Solar Power instead of electricity. I would run it on Solar Power because it is FREE=http://!

i think we depend on electricity to much because we need light to do my homework and somtimes i even leve the light open. Thats one way we depend on electrity. The other  we depend on electricity is by leaving the plugs in for ex:ds chargers, cell phone chargers, and psp chargers and sometime people leave the plugs in.



i think life would be horrble wih out. at night we would be useing  canndles instead of light , they are also  lots  outer way life would misarble with electricy .



if i was a inventer i wold use bubbles instead of electricicty becouse bubbles can not harm you and  bubbles don't make heat. if there was a plane,car truck exc. wouls go really fast and if it crashes into any thing it would not get sraches and brake.

           Yes, I think that we depend to much on electricity, because we leave the lights on to often.  Plus if we have a black out people say that they can't see, than use a candle.  i think that life would be easy without electricity.  I think that life would be easy and hard. It will be easy, because you don't have to pay your bills.  It will be hard, because you won't be able to find information as quick on the computer.



If I could invent something it would be a car that runs on water.  It can only move if the driver tells it to.  Plus it will automatically stop when it senses an object close by(It prevents car accidents).

Yes;because we need it to keep us alive like if we have eltric cars and we need to gft to the store. If we didn't have electricity it would be like stone age all over again. If I invented something it would run on garbage.This is because instead of wastting energy driving a garbage truck you us all of it.

I think we do depend on electricity because it helps us with not being bored inside your house.I think life would be boring without electricity because we wont have any t.v,computer,video games,and light and If it really happened,than I would play with my brother in the dark and I would do what ever I can with him.I would like my invention to run

on water because it is easily available.

I think we do not depend on electricity to mush because we would then have to use candles as light.



If we did not have electricity we would not have ever had transportation on some trains.



If I was an inventor, I would make electricity run on wind

 Yes,Because we need it to see at night time, watch tv,go on the computer, cook food and play video games. I think life would be boring because I won't be able to play video games or watch tv. I think it would be hard to cook. If I was an inventer I would invent something that would work on the sun's energy. It would work on the sun's energy because it is already there. I don't have to make new energy.

I think we depend too much on electricity because we can not do a lot of things without it.If we didn't have electricity for light we would use,fire classes would have different teaching methods and I wouldn't be typing this.If I invented a machine I would make it run on the sun because the suns power doesn't pollute the air.

I think we are depending on electricity too much. Few weeks ago we lost power in our house. When it happened we had to order Chineese food because our owen did not work. Lucky for us we had a warm water so we could take a bath but in the total darkness. Well we used some flashlights and candles. We also had a fireplace to keep us and chameleon warm. If we would not have electricity our the life would be like in the colonial times. No TV, no games, no internet, no music and worst of all no popcorn.

Instead of electricity I rather use pollution as a source of energy:-) This could clean the air, water and ground.

yes because everyone has things that run on electricity like t.vs, cell phones, refrigerators and more. If we didn't have electricity we wouldn't have light, we wouldn't have computers to do work on them, we wouldn't have refrigerators for food and more. I would like to see it be run on a windmill because you can store a windmill any where and you can't have blackouts with a windmill.

 I think we depend on to much electricity because we need electricity to charge phones, run computers, run TV's and charge DS's. Well it would be a like caveman time. I wouldn't need anything with electricity, but I could play with toys or write in  my writing notebook or just read. If I was an inventor I would invent a CS. A game system that you can play games on, call friends and can go on the Internet. It would run on olive oil. I want it to run on olive oil because cars can run on corn oil. So I thought why not we use olive oil because we have so much of it.

1. Yes we do TOO much depend on electricity because we really do need it on much things like in the night when it is really dark and used in our school so we can study things.



 



2. I think it would be difficult if we didn't have electricity because we can't even see when we are at school or we might bump into things.



 



3. I would rather see it run on electricity because I think electricity is the most important thing we all have!

I think we depend too much on electricity because if electricians didn't work on electricity we wouldn't have telephones,computers or telephone wires.

If we didn't have electricity it would be darker at night,we would use candles for light and oil lamps. We also wouldn't be able to play video games and we couldn't keep food in the house without refrigerators.If I was an inventor and invented something new that doesn't run on electricity it would run on Solar Power.
