Magnets: a hands-on, minds-on approach
This hands-on, minds-on approach to science teaches the attributes of magnets through scientific experimentation. Your students will gauge the ability a magnet has to attract objects, judge which magnets are the strongest, measure how far a magnet pulls an object, build a compass, and more. Each of the 14 lessons consists of a teacher's background information sheet and a reproducible student worksheet. Your students will love learning about magnets while completing the fun experiments. They will not only gain an understanding about magnets and their functions, but also how scientific experimentation can answer many of the questions they may have about the world.
