6-8 Physical Science: Electricity and Magnetism

Description

Grades 6-8 Physical Science: Electricity and Magnetism

Take your children on a hands-on exploration of electricity and magnetism with this multisensory study of physical science! It’s time to experiment with electricity and magnetism in a fun and engaging way that your children will never forget! Highlights include over 15 hands-on experiments to engage your children and provide a multisensory exploration of circuits, current, electromagnetism, motors, and more! Each chapter includes current and active links to multiple videos, hands-on activities, experiments, readings, worksheets, charts, interactive websites, games, full-color high resolution graphics, and more!

This unit study is part of our physical science core curriculum series for grades 6-8. The time needed to complete this unit study will vary for each child, but you should expect to spend approximately 40 hours.

Take a peek inside: History of electricity Nikola Tesla Thomas Edison Series circuits Parallel circuits Short circuits Switched circuits Lightning and static electricity Free electrons Valence shells Conductors, insulators, and resistors Ohm’s law Direct and alternating currents Galvanometers Amps, voltage, watts, and ohms Batteries Magnetic levitation systems Earth’s magnetism and compasses Magnetic fields Faraday’s law Electromagnetism Build an electric motor Electric cars Renewable energy sources and much more!

All activities in this unit study are presented in an easy to follow format with an active and updated web link. Click on the link and the best resources on the World Wide Web appear for your children. The links bring the world to your children by providing streaming videos, interactive web sites, educational games, audio files, and more. At Intellego Unit Studies, we believe in the varied learning styles and multiple intelligences of every child. That’s why all of our unit studies include reading and writing activities, videos, art, music, comparisons, drawing and painting, discussions, hands-on activities, art projects, full-color high resolution graphics, printable activity pages, and more!
