Learning about magnets is a great opportunity for students to problem solve, make connections, scaffold learning, and apply concepts to the real world.
The activities in this resource are presented in a sequential way. It can be printed off as a student workbook. There are no lessons per se, as the resource is more about discovery, and hands-on activities in order to learn about magnetism. Some QR codes that are linked to videos are used. It is important for the students to talk and write about their observations. There is plenty of opportunities for your students to build connections and revise their ideas.
