The Way Things Work – Electricity


In Electricity, inhabitants of Mammoth Island learn all about electricity during the annual lemon harvest. Electricity can be harnessed to power all sorts of things -- from light bulbs to trains. It can be used to carry information through the circuits of a computer, or to power a music system or television set! The islanders learn about how current and static electricity are different and what metals make excellent conductors of electricity. When one islander and his mammoth spear a lemon with their zinc and copper lances, thereby completing a circuit and causing electrons to flow, they discover that even a lemon can be a source of energy!
