Electric and Magnetic Forces Activities for Middle School Science
The resources below will provide students a comprehensive understanding of electric and magnetic forces. All of the following lessons are also included in the Kesler Science Membership.
The Electric and Magnetic Forces 5E Lesson includes materials for every "E" phase, including the Electric and Magnetic Forces Station Lab for Exploration and an interactive PowerPoint with digital INB templates for Explanation.
The lesson also includes introduction materials for Engagement, student-choice project ideas for Elaboration, and assessments for Evaluation.
After completing the Electric and Magnetic Forces 5E Lesson, students will be able to describe the forces of nature that create electromagnetism, and what factors determine the strength electric and magnetic forces.
The Electric and Magnetic Forces Inquiry Lab is a hands-on activity that is differentiated for advanced, on-level, and modified middle school students.
Students will create an electromagnet. They will be challenged to experiment with changing variables to better discover the factors at work with electromagnetic energy.
The Electric and Magnetic Forces Inquiry Lab includes a brief reading passage, comprehension checks, hands-on activities, reflection questions, and a CER conclusion.
The Electric and Magnetic Forces Sub Plan is a complete lesson that takes students through a warm-up, reading passage, independent activity, extension activities, and an assessment.
The worksheets are designed to make your sub day a breeze for you, your students, and the substitute teacher. They are also perfect for distance learning.
These year-round activities will increase your students' understanding of many middle school science topics. All of these activities are also included in the Kesler Science Membership.
You're not alone if your students struggle with understanding graphs, charts, and tables. It's a skill that takes an enormous amount of practice. This resource will help students build a strong foundation in analyzing data and creating their own data visualizations.
These middle school science bell ringers are an excellent way to engage your students as soon as they walk into your classroom. This comprehensive FULL YEAR resource includes everything you need to start off each science class with an interesting warm-up activity.
Each game board has been carefully designed to keep students engaged. There are 10 different action spaces on each board and dozens of question cards. All of the actions are related to science concepts and keep the students motivated throughout the game.
Each game is ready to play. Simply print out the board and the cards and let the students enjoy reviewing nine different units.
