Magnets on the MoveAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners investigate the behavior of magnets. Learners create a "wonder wand" with a magnet so they can move a skater around.
Separation AnxietyAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners discover the primary physical properties used to separate pure substances from mixtures.
Build an Electromagnet
In this activity, learners will build a simple electromagnet. They will test variables that would make the electromagnet stronger.
Eddy CurrentsAdd to list Details
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.
Magnetic Marble RunAdd to list Details
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.
Motor EffectAdd to list Details
In this activity about electricity and magnetism, learners examine what happens when a magnet exerts a force on a current-carrying wire.
Magnetic SeesawAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners build a seesaw powered by magnets.
History of Electricity
This is a series of demonstrations about different electrical and magnetic phenomena.
Milli's Super Sorting ChallengeAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners separate materials based on their special properties to mimic the way recyclables are sorted at recycling centers.
Does it Stick?
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.
How Do We Convert Mechanical Energy into Electrical Energy?
In this activity, learners use a compass, powerful magnet, and copper magnet wire to build a special generator known as a dynamo.
Magnetic Lines of ForceAdd to list Details
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.
Floating ButterflyAdd to list Details
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.
Properties of Metals
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.
Simple SpinnerAdd to list Details
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.
Circles of Magnetism IVAdd to list Details
In this activity related to magnetism and electricity, learners observe as two parallel, current-carrying wires exert forces on each other.
Repulsive Grape: DiamagnetismAdd to list Details
Do grapes, yes the grapes from the grocery store, move in the presence of a very strong magnet?
Wind Power: Creating a Wind Generator
This lesson challenges groups of learners to design and construct a wind generator with the most electrical output.
Circles of Magnetism IAdd to list Details
In this activity related to magnetism and electricity, learners create a magnetic field that's stronger than the Earth's magnetic field.
Density IntensityAdd to list Details
In this activity on page 12 of the PDF (Rethinking the 3 R’s: It’s Easy to be Green), learners examine how recyclable materials are separated by various properties at recycling centers.
