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: Electromagnet: Students will make their own electromagnet. They will then make improvements by increasing the coils or adding more batteries.
Part 5: Magnetism Bingo: To practice vocabulary and concepts students play Magnetism Bingo.
Activity 1: Light it Up!: Students investigate different ways to light a light bulb using a wire, a bulb, and a battery.
Activity 2: Insulators and Conductors: Students investigate a variety of materials to see which ones conduct electricity and which do not.
Activity 3: : Switch it On, Switch it Off: Students use materials to make a switch for a simple circuit.
Activity 4: All In A Row: Students build and investigate a series circuit.
Activity 5: Side By Side: Students build and investigate a parallel circuit.
Activity 6: Unit Review
A Post Test and Grading Rubric are also included.
3 Mini Posters of a bulb, series, and parallel circuits included.
