The document introduces the following technical content:
• Atomic model
• Electrical conductivity
• Electric current and voltage
• Electric circuit
• Electrical resistance
It also presents analogies and models on current.

Following that, it provides tips for teaching an energy concept that can be built upon.

Finally, models that can be used to support the conceptual separation of electricity and energy are presented. Two examples are presented.
