We use power every day of our lives. In developed countries like Australia and New Zealand, it is easy to take it for granted. Use this book to give children an appreciation of how differently people use power all around the world.


Embedding sustainability in the curriculum is a key focus throughout the Early Years with an emphasis on children knowing and understanding their consumption of electricity, water, and alternative energy sources. Powerwise provides teachers with an excellent resource that explores electricity, alternative energy sources, and social inequality throughout the world.


Children are encouraged to examine their daily use of electricity and ways to save electricity. Comparisons with other children around the world highlight the advantages of living in a developed country.


Powerwise is suitable for use across the Early Years as an introductory text and as a discussion prompt in higher year levels, which explore electricity use in more depth. Using Powerwise is a great stimulus for a wide range of activities and experiments about electrical currents, safety, sustainability, and alternative energy sources.
