lightning.

without electricity.
• We couldn’t use microwaves or ovens.
• There would be very little light to see at
night.
• It would be hard to research to learn new
things so you can get a good job.
Reason 2
There would not much fun.
• There would be no video games.
• There would be no computers or laptops.
• There would be no iPods
Reason 3
There would be no clocks to tell
time.
• For parties it would be hard to know when
to go and leave.

starts and ends.
