Fun with Electromagnets

This Fun with Electromagnets lesson plan also includes:

Junior scientists work in groups to construct electromagnets. They experiment by varying number of wraps around the nail, the diameter of the nail, and the type of metal the nail is made of to see if any of these factors has an effect on magnetic strength. Consider having learners draw data tables for the experiment and writing a conclusion of what they learn.
