How Many? How Far? How Thick?

Fifth graders examine the role of magnetism and electricity. In groups, they are given different types of magnets and discover how the magnetic force differs for each one. They measure the amount of distance a paper clip moves toward the magnet and experiment with many magnets to see if the force on the object changes. To end the instructional activity, they examine their observations and discuss their results.
