PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The Magnet and Electricity Centers are included in the complete Energy Unit (see link below) but can be used independently. It includes a detailed description of 5 different centers/stations for students to explore concepts of magnetism and electricity. A materials list and specific directions are provided as well as any preparation needed for each center. A Magnet & Electricity Center Worksheet has students fill in answers, charts, and draw diagrams of the answers they discover while at each station. This can be used as a class lesson where students complete each station during class or whenever students have time to explore a station. I have also used as a performance assessment.

Students will explore the following concepts:

Magnets:
-Magnetic & Non-Magnetic Materials
-North & South Poles
-Attracting & Repelling
-Magnets and Compasses

Electricity:
-Series Circuits
-Parallel Circuits
-Create a Closed Circuit

Please note that you will need to have bar magnets with labeled poles, compasses, and materials for electric circuits: bulbs, batteries, and wires.

These centers are part of the complete Energy Unit over kinetic/potential energy, electricity, light, sound, and heat. It includes 8 lesson plans, 4 experiments with guided worksheets, magnet and electricity centers, and an end of unit assessment.
