These two units go hand in hand. Give your students some engaging hands-on experiences to help them build their conceptual understanding of magnetism and electricity. Each of these units is sold separately as well, but purchase them together and save!
Here's what's included:
Activity 1: Attraction Action: Students hypothesize then test a variety of objects to determine which ones are magnetic.
Activity 2: Give Me Strength!: Students will test different magnets to see which ones are stronger. They will also make some conclusions as to where the magnets are strongest.
Activity 3: North vs. South: Students will investigate the poles of bar magnets. They will also use iron filings to discover the magnetic field of a bar magnet.
Activity 4 Magnetism Maze: Students create a maze on a paper plate and then use magnets to navigate an object through the maze.
Activity 5: Electromagnet: Students will make their own electromagnet. They will then make improvements by increasing the coils or adding more batteries.
Activity 6: Magnetism Bingo: To practice vocabulary and concepts students play Magnetism Bingo.
