Guided notes and PowerPoint I use to teach an introduction to magnetism. It includes information on magnetic force and magnetic field lines as well as basic properties of magnets. It is designed to accompany Pearson Science Explorer: Electricity and Magnetism chapter 1 section 1 but could be modified to fit any text.
The PowerPoint is 11 slides and includes daily objectives and activator/bell ringer questions. The guided notes are 2 pages and include a full answer key.
This lesson only takes about 30 minutes depending on the level of students. I included some demonstrations with magnets and then followed with the Bill Nye-Magnetism episode.
MA State Framework this lesson provides a basis of understanding for:
5.6 Recognize that moving electric charges produce magnetic forces and moving magnets produce electric forces. Recognize that the interplay of electric and magnetic forces is the basis for electric motors, generators, and other technologies.
