Electricity and Magnetism is one of my favorite science units and EVERYTHING you need to teach a science unit on electricity and magnets can be found here! This 2 ½ week, 80 page electricity and magnetism unit includes:
+ 9 S.T.E.A.M. Based Science Lessons on Everything Electricity & Magnetism: Lessons allow students to investigate conductors and insulators, open and closed circuits, series and parallel circuits, static electricity, basic concepts about magnets, how to build an electromagnet, types of energy (potential, kinetic, thermal, radiant, & mechanical), and famous scientists who made contributions to electricity and magnetism. Every lesson is very hands-on and incorporates lots of critical thinking. Experiments incorporate the scientific method. Hands-on components include experiments, investigation through art, building circuits and electromagnets, center activities, sorts, and creating flip books and foldables. All lessons are aligned with state standards.
+ 13 Worksheets: These include student observation sheets for experiments and centers, close reading passages and comprehension questions, center instruction cards, and review worksheets.
+ 4 Center Activities: 4 experiment based centers to help student create and discover concepts about static electricity.
