Designed specifically for grades 1 and 2, this program sets out to make youngsters aware of the nature of electricity and its potential hazards. The information is conveyed in three short stories where electricity plays a role. Each story is illustrated with eight colourful storyboards.

The teacher’s guide includes an annotated storybook. The student workbook uses the stories as the basis for its activities and can also serve as a colouring book.
