Electromagnets- 6 Mini Investigations
Third graders discover the properties of electromagnets through experiments. In this electromagnet properties lesson, 3rd graders complete six tasks with an elctromagnet. Students recognize that the wires will heat up when connected to the battery. Students understand currents and can relate iron in their diet to iron in their food.
Magnetic Fields, Magnetic Forces, and Electromagnetic Induction Sample Problems
After high schoolers have learned about electromagnetic induction, they can solve these 10 practice problems. They calculate magnetic field strength, magnetic force, electromotive force, and output voltage. This is a choice option as a homework assignment for your general physics class.
Junkyard Wars-Investigating More Electromagnets
Fourth graders conduct an investigation in order to determine a way to change the strength of an electromagnet's magnetic force. After conducting "control" lifts with their electromagnet, groups make initial changes, record data, and retest. Additional changes are made before class competition begins.
Young scholars conduct a series of experiments on electromagnets. In this physics lesson plan, students build their own electromagnet and explain how it works. They determine the factors that affect its strength.
Students investigate electromagnetic energy. In this magnetism lesson, students will create an electromagnet and test changes with increased energy. They will compete by building the strongest electromagnet.
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.
Making Waves With the Electromagnetic Spectrum
Your high schoolers examine various types of electromagnetic waves and create a chart of the spectrum. They watch a video segment and use an interactive activity that explains the range of the spectrum and common sources of electromagnetic waves.
Build an Electromagnet
Students construct and use an electromagnet.
The Electromagnetic Spectrum: Waves of Energy
Students explain the sun's energy is transferred to Earth by electromagnetic waves. They explain that there are eight main types of electromagnetic waves, classified on the electromagnetic spectrum according to their wavelengths.
Sixth graders work in pairs to build an electromagnet. Then, they brainstorm ideas on how to create a stronger electromagnet. They be given time to investigate, design, and experiment.
Electromagnetic Waves and Wireless Communication
Students investigate the use of electromagnetic waves as it relates to wireless communications. In this physics lesson, students investigate the development of wireless communication and how it is used.
Young scholars explore electromagnetism. In this Physical Science lesson plan, students will build an electromagnet after watching an anticipation video. The young scholars will manipulate variables to attempt to change the strength of their electromagnet.
Make an Electromagnet
Students study electromagnets and how they can produce an invisible magnetic field. In this magnetic lesson students create an electric current and make conclusions about what they saw.
Students explore the nature of electromagnetic spectrum through a series of experiments. In this physics lesson, students determine how light behaves under certain circumstances. They explain how humans perceive colors.
Basic Electromagnetism and Electromagnetic Induction
In this electromagnetism and electromagnetic induction worksheet, high schoolers answer 12 questions about electricity, about the magnetic fields in given diagrams, about the right-hand rule and about electric current and voltage in magnetic circuits.
Intermediate Electromagnetism and Electromagnetic Induction
For this electrical circuit worksheet, students answer a series of 24 open-ended questions about electromagnetism and electromagnetic induction. This worksheet is printable and the answers are revealed online.
Students use video learning and construct electromagnets and use them to collect data, graph, and share with others.
Learners define electromagnetic radiation, list major categories and uses of electromagnetic waves, identify potential health risks with electromagnetic waves, and demonstrate understanding of Plank's constant by solving quantitative equations on wavelength, frequency, and energy.
Students build and test electromagnets. In this electricity and magnetism lesson, students build a basic electromagnet, then alter the design to see if they can change the magnetic force.
Students explore electricity by completing a scientific worksheet in class. In this electromagnetism lesson, students discuss the history of magnets and how electromagnets are most commonly used in our daily lives. Students complete a worksheet about magnets and participate in a lab activity by experimenting with battery packs and wires.
