Student understands the concept of electromagnetism
|*Level 2 tasks attempted but not completed or mastered.
*Student, through successful completion of activity 1, discovers magnetic fields around their school or classroom using the compass.
*Student demonstrates that they know Earth has a magnetic field and it acts almost like a bar magnet.
*Student knows that their compass can detect the magnetism of Earth as well as smaller magnetic fields.
*Student, through successful completion of activity 2, recognizes changes in the compass when near an electric current (electricity).
*Student demonstrates, through successful completion of activity 3, that they understand how magnets and coils of electrical currents are alike and different.
*Student, using the compass and through successful completion of activity 4, recognizes the greatest magnetic field between two differing coils and voltages.
*Student knows that electricity flowing in wires creates an invisible magnetic field.
*Student knows that their compass is detecting the magnetic field coming from sources of electricity.
*Student, through successful completion of activity 5, recognizes changes in the galvanometer/ ammeter when different sized magnets are passed through differing coils.
*Student identifies the factors that affect the size of currents induced in the circuit.
*Student fully demonstrates comprehension of electromagnetism through successful exploration of activities and 90% and above correctness in activity worksheets.
