PowerPoint I use to teach students about the parts of an atom and what makes something magnetic (and how it can also be de-magnetized). Includes a short activity using the PhET simulation "Build an Atom" (PowerPoint includes a hyperlink to the sim) that we did together as a class. I like to have a student come up to the board to run it while I fill in their note paper and have the class direct them what to do and they come up with the answers to the questions together. If you have a 1-1 classroom, each student could do the activity individually and then discuss what they found as a class.
PowerPoint includes Activator/Bell Ringer questions and daily objectives. PowerPoint is 12 Slides. Guided notes with the activity is 3 pages long and a complete answer key is included.
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.
