This week in Physical Science we will continue in our 4th unit of the year “Electricity & Magnetism”. Our focus for this week is Magnets.
Students will get a chance to explore through a variety of activities demonstrates how magnets and magnetic fields work or are created.
*Students are required to complete all notes at home as well as CK-12 Practice through their Edmodo accounts to allow time to explore in class using labs and virtual labs every week. Please notify an 8th-grade science teacher if your student needs to stay after school or before school to complete online assignments. All teachers are flexible and willing to assists any student with whatever the needs may be to get assignments completed on time. No excuses!
- Online Assignments for this week through Edmodo for All Science Classes: CK-12 Science Practice (Magnets).
Standard(s)/Objective(s): S8P5. Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information about gravity, electricity, and magnetism as major forces acting in nature.
a. Construct an argument using evidence to support the claim that fields (i.e., magnetic fields, gravitational fields, and electric fields) exist between objects exerting forces on each other even when the objects are not in contact.
Driving Question: How do the properties of magnets explain why some materials are magnetic or some are not?
