This file is a hands-on unit in electricity and magnetism. It was designed by a Montessori trained 6-12 guide to meet the classroom need for 4th grade Minnesota state standards (benchmarks 126.96.36.199.3, 188.8.131.52.2, 184.108.40.206.3) in a hands-on, Montessori, way. It is perfect for classroom or homeschool use with upper elementary and middle school students. For classroom use, consider adjusting the number of exploration bags and card materials.
File includes 2 complete sets of original Montessori card materials (1 for conductivity and 1 for circuits) and 3 lesson presentations. It is designed to present once per week over three weeks, with individual follow up work and exploration in between. In order to present the lessons, the teacher will need to assemble three exploration bags using commonly available materials. File includes separate material list.
While the file does include several color images, I recommend printing in black and white to save ink and for consistency throughout the material.
