Learners use shop tools and various materials to construct a magnetic spinner and a compass.
In this activity, learners explore the relationship between electric charges and magnetic fields.
In this activity, young learners investigate magnets. Learners discover that some magnets are stronger than others and that magnets have north and south poles.
Learners can program a compass to draw a circle by itself using a Pico Cricket, some Legos, and lots of tape! Pico Cricket is required.
In this physics activity (page 8 of the PDF), learners will make their very own working compass.
In this activity, learners map their world by drawing a plan of their bedroom.
In this activity, learners build and test a compass. Learners work in pairs and pretend they are stuck in the wilderness at night.
Learners use their opponent's clues and a compass rose to find the hidden treasure on a map. Learners use problem solving and coordinate grid skills as they hunt for treasure.
In this activity, learners use simple materials to build their own compass.
In this activity, learners work in teams to simulate the process used by Global Positioning Systems (GPS) to determine the location of a fallen meteorite in Antarctica.
In this activity, learners build their own magnetometer using an empty soda bottle, magnets, laser pointer, and household objects.
In this outdoor activity, learners use a mapping technique to become oriented to the major features of an outdoor site.
In this activity related to magnetism and electricity, learners create a magnetic field that's stronger than the Earth's magnetic field.
In this activity, learners make a 3-D model of magnetic fields by inserting a small, strong magnet into a sphere.
In this activity, learners explore the magnetic field of a bar magnet as an introduction to understanding Earth's magnetic field. First, learners explore and play with magnets and compasses.
In this meteorology activity, learners build weather vanes using straws, paperclips, and cardstock.
In this activity, teams of learners study magnetic fields at four separate stations: examining magnetic fields generated by everyday items, mapping out a magnetic field using a compass, creating model
