Electricity and Magnetism: Are They Related?
Students explore electricity and magnetism. Through the use of role play, students simulate being a scientist. Experiments are performed during the simulation to discover the relationship between electric current and magnetism. After group research, students create a poster to present their ideas on the relationship between electrical current and magnetism.
