Magnetic Fields Lesson Gr. 4-6
- Author : Deslauriers, Isabel
The force produced by a magnet reaches some distance from the magnet. This is why a paperclip placed one or two centimeters from a magnet will jump towards it. The pattern in which the force reaches through space is called a magnetic field. Your students will see this pattern by sprinkling iron filings on a piece of paper over a magnet.
This lesson plan consists of magnetic artwork, and two experiments involving magnetic strength and blocking magnets.
