Electromagnetic Energy and Its Spectrum
Your older elementary students investigate electromagnetic energy and the electromagnetic spectrum. They will observe 7 items represented in the electromagnetic spectrum and make a poster of all the things the items have in common. After observing a box of water and creating waves in the water to observe the relationship between energy and wavelength, they observe a light shining on a prism and record their observations.

Electromagnets - How Can Electricity Create a Magnet?
If you wrap wire around a screw and run an electric current through it, you create an electromagnet. What once had no magnetic pull is then able to pick up other metal materials. Marshall Brain demonstrates this for the camera in the comfort of his kitchen.
