PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Magnet Racer: Students will power a car without touching it, using only magnets.

Included:
-student recording and testing sheet
-math connections page
-project rubric
-detailed notes to teacher

This activity was designed to meet third grade NGSS standards for Motion and Stability. It also addresses engineering standards for multiple grades and is appropriate for grades 3-5.

NGSS 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.

Materials Needed:
-2 magnetic trains (optional, for demonstration)
-a bar magnet and a magnetic wand or horseshoe magnet for each
rubber bands
-materials to build the cards, see options above (Legos or other STEM engineering supplies work well, and for a quick option, just grab a small toy car for each group.)

This set is part of my Hands-On Magnet Bundle!!
