This PowerPoint, complete with guided / scaffolded notes, a video, and built-in short activities, is directly aligned to Next Generation Science Standard MS-PS2-3 (or 07-PS2-3 if you're in Kentucky).
The 14 slide PowerPoint is intended as in introduction (it could also be used as a review) to Electromagnets and Electric Motors. It focuses on how they work, what the different components are, and how to change their strength, per the NGSS.
The guided / scaffolded notes come straight from the PowerPoint, are neatly organized, and have 4 short activities that assess whether or not students are understanding the content. These can be a lot of fun when made into partner or whole-group activities.
The included YouTube video explains how to make a simple electric motor, along with an explanation.
