Magnets

by Melissa Webber

This unit will introduce students to magnets. It will provide an overview of what a magnet is, what kinds of objects are magnetic, and how magnets are used in everyday life. Students will participate in hands-on activities, using the scientific process to discover answers to their questions about magnets. Lessons include: Lesson #1: What do we Know about Magnets? Lesson #2: Are you Magnetic? (Part 1) Lesson #3: Are you Magnetic? (Part 2) Lesson #4: Magnetic Force Field Lesson #5: The Strength of a Magnet Lesson #6: Exploring Magnetic Poles (Part 1) Lesson #7: Exploring Magnetic Poles (Part 2) Lesson #8: The Power of Magnets Lesson #9: Making a Magnetic Compass Lesson #10: Compass Treasure Hunt Lesson #11: Unit Review and Final Evaluation Unit Resources include: Vocabulary Cards No Magnets Sign KWL Chart Are You Magnetic?

This is seventh lab/activity within an Electricity and Magnetism unit. This first magnetic lab uses the hands-on magnet activities to introduce the following key concepts: magnetic poles and their interactions, the earth as a magnet and how it interacts with magnets, visualizing and sketching two and three dimensional magnetic fields, magnetizing and un-magnetizing objects with respect to magnetic domains, the difference between temporary and permanent magnets.
