This was designed for the third grade Georgia Performance Standards, but can be used in any classroom learning the basics of magnets. Georgia Standards are as follows:
Students will investigate magnets and how they affect other magnets and common objects.
a. Investigate to find common objects that are attracted to magnets.
b. Investigate how magnets attract and repel each other.
There are two reading passages (one specifically about magnets in general, and the other about electromagnets). Each comes as a one page reading passage with bold-faced vocabulary. The passage is also presented for a closer read with questions side-by-side with the text.
Vocabulary Cards with and without illustrations and definitions are included, along with a variety of options of how to use the vocabulary cards for discussions, classroom display, and games.
You will also get an 18 question multiple choice assessment and an investigation/lab to explore magnets. A great resource to supplement your classroom lessons.
