Electricity and Magnetism Writing

This activity gives students the opportunity to research, plan, and write an informational paper on five different topics. It is a great way to integrate research, writing, and science!

There is so much value in allowing students to discover new concepts on their own, complete their own research, and teach others. There is ALSO a whole lot of value in writing in the content areas. I used this activity before teaching a unit on Electricity and Magnetism in my classroom. Students were assigned one of the topics, conducted the research, and then used their planning pages to write an informational paper about their topic. They were SO EXCITED to share their knowledge with their classmates using jigsaw groups.

This activity includes:

→ Research Plan
→ Writing Plan
→ Works Cited Page
→ Final Draft Papers For: Conducts and Insulators, Static Electricity, Magnets, Electromagnets, and Circuits
→ Graphics in Color and Black/White

Note: This activity does NOT include the actual research. Students are required to use a variety of resources to conduct their own research.

Teaching Ideas:

→ Preview your unit by assigning each student a topic and then having them share their results in a jigsaw group.

→ Use as an extension activity for your high ability learners.

→ Complete your unit with this activity and use it as a summative assessment.
