Energy and Electromagnetism

The Energy and Electromagnetism Module introduces or reinforces concepts in physical science dealing with energy and change. Students experience electricity and magnetism as related effects and learn useful applications of electromagnetism in everyday life.

Students will:

  • Ask questions that can be answered about electricity and magnetism.
  • Plan and conduct investigations about electromagnetism; record and organize data using appropriate tools for the task.
  • Analyze observations; build reasonable explanations; discuss and justify the merits of explanations.
  • Conduct an experiment to determine how the force of attraction between two magnets changes with the distance between the magnets.
  • Conduct an experiment to determine how the number of winds in an electromagnet coil affects the strength of the magnetism.
  • Design and build a model telegraph system.
  • Use tools and techniques to make observations and build explanations about light.

Investigations:

  • Investigation 1: Energy and Circuits
  • Investigation 2: Series and Parallel
  • Investigation 3: The Force of Magnetism
  • Investigation 4: Electromagnets
  • Investigation 5: Light Insight

A Complete Kit includes:

  • Investigations Guide
  • Teacher Resources
  • 32 Science Resource books
  • Nonconsumable equipment
  • Consumable materials for two class uses
