Students will define electricity and explain magnetism. Illustrate and label an example of how magnets attract or repel each other with arrows. Discuss how the distance affects the pull or push between two magnetic objects. Hypothesize as to how the Earth’s magnetic field protects us from harmful, high energy, charged particles (radiation). Evaluate why an electromagnet gets stronger as the number of coils around it increases.
Answer key included. Check out the power point for a resource on TPT.
