This interactive Powerpoint presentation is the perfect addition to your unit of study on electricity, insulators and conductors, and circuits. It answers the question of what is an electromagnet and how is it used in our everyday lives. It defines electromagnets and gives examples of real life products and uses of electromagnets. It includes a guided teacher demonstration of making an electromagnet out of a battery, wire and a nail, as well as includes turn and talk discussion questions for students. It ends with two Exit Ticket questions that could be used as an informal assessment of student's learning.
