1. During the flickclip, students could make a list of observations. What lead up to the accident: the cat pulling the Christmas lights out of the wall and Clark pluggin them back in. What is the sequenced of sounds and sights when Clark plugs the lights back into the wall: Lights come back on, hear shorting out sound, Christmas lights blinking on/off, Christmas lights go off as well as the rest of the house lights, see flashes, sparks coming from chair coinciding with cat shrieking and then see smoke bellowing out from under the chair.
2. This clip could lead to discussions on how electricity works and you could run an experiment on series and parallel circuits built from batteries, wires and bulbs.
