**Science- Magnetism & Electricity Module**

" The

**Magnetism and Electricity Module**consists of five sequential investigations conducted to help students understand the effects and transfer of energy in various forms.

January - February Science Schedule

Week 1 - Investigation into Static Electricity: Students will explore positive and negative charges and transfer energy to a lightbulb.

Week 2 - Magnets: Students will explore how charges attract and repel each other in a magnetic field.

Week 3 - Circuits: Students will classify and build parallel and simple circuits to understand the flow of energy.

Week 4 - Electromagnets: Students will investigate the transfer of energy in electromagnets.

Week 5 - Telegraph: Students will learn how he telegraph works using circuits to transfer energy.

California Content Standards:

**1. Electricity and magnetism are related effects that have many useful applications in everyday life. As a basis for understanding this concept:**

- a.
*Students know*how to design and build simple__series and parallel circuits__by using components such as wires, batteries, and bulbs. - b.
*Students know*how to build a simple compass and use it to detect__magnetic effects__, including Earth’s magnetic field. - c.
*Students know*__electric currents__produce magnetic fields and know how to build a simple__electromagnet__. - d.
*Students know*the role of electromagnets in the construction of electric motors, electric generators, and simple devices, such as doorbells and earphones. - e.
*Students know*electrically charged objects__attract__or__repel__each other. - f.
*Students know*that magnets have two poles (north and south) and that like poles repel each other while unlike poles attract each other. - g.
*Students know*__electrical energy__can be converted to heat, light, and motion.

**Key vocabulary words:**energy, light, electricity, moving object, energy source, Sun, convert, chemical energy fossil fuel, motion, battery, wave, electric current, circuits, tranfer, repel, attract.
