Zap, Zap, Zap! Spark your students’ curiosity and illuminate their understanding of electromagnet with this captivating resource. Designed to be both informative and engaging, this resource explores the fascinating world of electromagnetism, covering everything from its fundamental concepts to important aspects of electricity safety. Students will have the opportunity to delve into hands-on experiments, using simple materials such as batteries, wires, and nails to create their very own electromagnets. As they witness the power of these electromagnets firsthand, their curiosity will be piqued, fueling their desire to learn more about this incredible phenomenon. The fun doesn't stop there - students will also be able to put their electromagnets to practical use by using them to collect paper clips. To enhance the learning experience, students will then enter the data they collect into a convenient Google spreadsheet, allowing for further analysis and exploration of the results. By the end of this lesson, it is my hope that students will not only have gained a deeper understanding of electromagnetism but also develop a genuine enthusiasm for science and a desire to continue exploring its mysteries.
