This is the Target Group Menu for a group of targets from the Science Framework for Planning
Group 13  Electricity
This way for Group 14 (Alt.) - Living on Earth (Animals)

How do we get electricity to work for us?
Big Idea
- How can we meet our energy needs without damaging the environment?

Science - Interactive Guidelines Curriculum for Excellence - draft outcomes
CfE (Energy in the Environment - Electricity) (Level Early) - SCN 006J - I have created a display to show the importance of electricity in our daily lives. I can use this to share my understanding of how to stay safe when using electricity.
CfE (Energy in the Environment - Electricity) (Level Second) - SCN 221J - I can design a circuit which can be used to sort materials into electrical conductors and insulators. I can identify where conductors and insulators are important in everyday applications.
CfE (Energy in the Environment - Electricity) (Level Third) - SCN 312J - I can use fault-finding techniques to detect simple faults in electrical appliances and suggest how these might safely be corrected. Using my practical experience of fuses, circuit breakers and earth wires, I can describe the dangers of electricity for the human body, and can present safety advice for others.
CfE (Topical Science) (Level Second) - SCN 236BB - I can report and comment on a current scientific news item to develop my awareness of topical science.
