Product Description
To complete this Electromagnet Lab you will need a large iron nail, insulated copper wire, a D sized battery, and small paperclips.

Students will construct an electromagnet and use it to pick up paperclips. Students will test the numbers of coils with the number of paperclips that are picked up. They will then record their data. Next they will create a bar graph in order to represent their findings.

Students will then answer questions about their lab.

Also included you will find an information sheet with questions (and key) and a word search with electromagnet terms (and key).

Great graphics from www.whimsyclips.com
