Engage your students in scientific inquiry with this adorable lesson on magnetism! "On a Beam of Light", written by Jennifer Berne, is a cute little story about Albert Einstein and is a great starting point to introduce the Science Practices (SEP's) of Asking Questions and Carrying Out Investigations. Using Albert Einstein as an example of a curious young mind, students will ask questions about compasses (just like Albert!) and investigate the properties of magnets through hands on inquiry.
You and your students will enjoy learning about polarity, strength, and magnetic properties as you engage in this learning journey!
