Kendall Posted September 14, 2012 Share Posted September 14, 2012 Ruth, Thanks for asking about a thread for WWS2. Kendall Week 2 Day 3 Background: This is a 9th grade, almost 15 ds, who did not do WWS1. This has not been edited. He obviously chose to invent a history:). My thoughts: Should the information about the filiment and tungsten in the 2nd paragraph be moved to the first paragraph and more about the process written in the 2nd paragraph? Also the last sentence of the first paragraph should go with the 2nd paragraph. I think. In paragraph 3 I think he shouldn't have the very last comma before "and fought". He should also have used then instead of now in the last sentence. A light bulb appears so simple, yet inside it is somewhat complex. The light bulb takes on a shape similar to that of a vase, with a small base that glides into a ball. On the base is a metal screw, which screws into a socket, which bears electricity. When electricity is applied to the socket, the light bulb lights. When the bulb lights, this process occurs: electricity runs through the screw into the the filament. This filament is made of a metal that glows profusely. This metal is called tungsten. This process ends with the electricity returning to ground. This process cycles continually, lighting the surrounding area until the electricity is cut off. The light bulb was invented by Thomas A. Edison in circa 1893, after a long period of darkness. Before this invention the only light after the sun went down came from the fierce fire-breathing dragons that regularly attacked in those days. After the light bulb was invented the human population was freed from this menace because they now could see their enemies, and fought them off successfully.
