Product Description
Test which materials are attracted to a magnet; test to find what materials affect a magnetic field; make a game using magnets; demonstrate magnetic poles; create a model of a compass. Great activities that your students will love!

I recorded a video to give you an overview of the lessons - it's like I'm sitting next to you going through all your options with this product! I also created 17 simple videos you can use to preview or review activities. Choose from two student essays that are saved with three reading levels in English and two in Spanish. The essays have also been recorded for students who benefit from listening to the text. A variety of assessments including performance assessments can be used to assess student understanding.

The activities use materials* that you can collect locally or you can purchase a kit through our store.

This lesson supports NGSS 3-PS2-1•, 3-PS2-2º, 3-PS2-3♦, and 3-PS2-4◊.

It’s part of a series about physics units including: forces, pushes and pulls, air and water pressure, this product, and static electricity.

• 3-PS2-1. Plan and conduct an investigation to provide evidence of the effects of balanced and unbalanced forces on the
motion of an object.

º 3-PS2-2. Make observations and/or measurements of an object’s motion to provide evidence that a pattern can be used to
predict future motion.

♦ 3-PS2-3. Ask questions to determine cause and effect relationships of electric or magnetic interactions between two
objects not in contact with each other.

◊ 3-PS2-4. Define a simple design problem that can be solved by applying scientific ideas about magnets.
