What is electricity and how does it work?
Electricity is like invisible energy that can power things and make them work. It's like the magic that brings light to your room when you turn on a lamp or makes your toys move when you switch them on.

At its core, electricity is the flow of tiny particles called electrons. These electrons are part of atoms, which are the tiny building blocks that make up everything around us.

Imagine you have a big water slide. Water slides down the slide because of the force of gravity. In a similar way, electrons can flow through certain materials, like metal wires, because they have an electrical force that makes them move.

When we want to use electricity, we need a circuit. A circuit is like a special pathway for the electrons to flow through. It's like a track for a toy train. When the circuit is complete, meaning the path is connected from the power source to the thing we want to power, the electrons can flow and deliver electricity.

For example, when you turn on a lamp, the electricity flows from the power source, through the wires, and into the lamp. This flow of electrons provides energy to the lamp, which creates light.

So, electricity is the flow of tiny particles called electrons through a pathway called a circuit, and it powers things like lights and toys by delivering energy to them. It's like invisible magic that makes our world work!
