In this activity, learners investigate the behavior of magnets. Learners create a "wonder wand" with a magnet so they can move a skater around.
In this activity, learners discover the primary physical properties used to separate pure substances from mixtures.
In this activity, learners will build a simple electromagnet. They will test variables that would make the electromagnet stronger.
In this activity related to magnetism and electricity, learners discover that a magnet falls more slowly through a metallic tube than it does through a nonmetallic tube.
Learners explore magnetism and motion as they build a simple marble run. Learners test different arrangements of plastic and cardboard tubes, bottles, and cups on a magnetic board.
In this activity about electricity and magnetism, learners examine what happens when a magnet exerts a force on a current-carrying wire.
In this activity, learners build a seesaw powered by magnets.
This is a series of demonstrations about different electrical and magnetic phenomena.
In this activity, learners separate materials based on their special properties to mimic the way recyclables are sorted at recycling centers.
In this activity, learners will observe magnetic properties and sort objects by them. This activity uses everyday items to teach learners about magnetic forces, poles and properties of magnets.
In this activity, learners use a compass, powerful magnet, and copper magnet wire to build a special generator known as a dynamo.
With a magnet, iron fillings, and a bottle, you can create a cool demonstration about magnetic lines of force: the fillings will arrange themselves within the magnet's magnetic field.
In this activity, learners create a cool floating animal using the science of magnetism. Learners discover what happens when a piece of magnetic metal enters a magnet's field.
In this activity, learners explore the properties of metals at four stations. The stations include A) Magnetism and Breakfast Cereal; B) Conductivity of Metals; C) Alloys; and D) Metal Plating.
In this activity, learners create a tiny electric, motorized dancer. Learners use the interactions of magnetism and electric current to make a wire spin, while displaying the Lorentz Force in action.
In this activity related to magnetism and electricity, learners observe as two parallel, current-carrying wires exert forces on each other.
Do grapes, yes the grapes from the grocery store, move in the presence of a very strong magnet?
This lesson challenges groups of learners to design and construct a wind generator with the most electrical output.
In this activity related to magnetism and electricity, learners create a magnetic field that's stronger than the Earth's magnetic field.
