Dangerous Electricity by Riley
We went on a field trip to First Electric and I learned that electricity is very dangerous. The reason you stay away from power lines is because they are very high voltage. Due to the high voltage, power lines could electrocute you and send electricity to the ground. Electricity travels so fast that if you were to wrap a power line around the earth twice and put a light bulb on one end and a switch on the other side and put them next to each other then flip the switch your light bulb is already on. This is a reminder if you touch a power line it could result in severe injury or even death.
