Learning Objective

Students will use engineering skills to make an electromagnet. Students will also practice reading informational text skills by reading a nonfiction article all about magnets.

Description

Students will make an electromagnet using STEM engineering skills. They will design, test and refine their electromagnet through investigation. Aligned with NGSS for third and fourth grade.This resource includes two lessons. One is a STEM Engineering lesson on making an electromagnet. The other is a reading informational text lesson that comes with a 3 page informational text article on magnets. This resource includes flaps and folds for interactive notebooks.

This lesson is aligned with 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.

4-PS3-4. Apply scientific ideas to design, test, and refine a device that converts energy from one form to another (electromagnet lesson)

And

3-5-ETS1-1. Define a simple design problem reflecting

3-5-ETS1-2. Generate and compare multiple possible solutions to a problem based on how well each is likely to meet the

criteria and constraints of the problem.

3-5-ETS1-3. Plan and carry out fair tests in which variables are controlled and failure points are considered to identify

aspects of a model or prototype that can be improved.

NGSS Science and Engineering Practices Used:

Asking questions (for science) and defining problems (for engineering)

Developing and using models. Planning and carrying out investigations. Analyzing and interpreting data

Using mathematics and computational thinking

Constructing explanations (for science) and designing solutions (for engineering)

Engaging in argument from evidence

Obtaining, evaluating, and communicating information

Also Aligned with CCSS for Reading Informational Text.

Standards

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
NGSS3-PS2-4
Define a simple design problem that can be solved by applying scientific ideas about magnets. Examples of problems could include constructing a latch to keep a door shut and creating a device to keep two moving objects from touching each other.
NGSS3-PS2-3
Ask questions to determine cause and effect relationships of electric or magnetic interactions between two objects not in contact with each other. Examples of an electric force could include the force on hair from an electrically charged balloon and the electrical forces between a charged rod and pieces of paper; examples of a magnetic force could include the force between two permanent magnets, the force between an electromagnet and steel paperclips, and the force exerted by one magnet versus the force exerted by two magnets. Examples of cause and effect relationships could include how the distance between objects affects strength of the force and how the orientation of magnets affects the direction of the magnetic force. Assessment is limited to forces produced by objects that can be manipulated by students, and electrical interactions are limited to static electricity.
NGSS4-PS3-4
Apply scientific ideas to design, test, and refine a device that converts energy from one form to another. Examples of devices could include electric circuits that convert electrical energy into motion energy of a vehicle, light, or sound; and, a passive solar heater that converts light into heat. Examples of constraints could include the materials, cost, or time to design the device. Devices should be limited to those that convert motion energy to electric energy or use stored energy to cause motion or produce light or sound.
