Target learning: Investigate the properties of metal objects to see which type of metal is magnetic
This is a folding lab sheet designed so the student can glue it in their science spiral or notebook
I have included two lab sheets. One is already filled out with the types of metals to test and one is if you would like to change the objects and add in your own
Students will investigate the properties of matter using tools such as magnets to determine what types of metals are attracted and which are not attracted to a magnet.
Students also investigate which type of magnet is the strongest and how to test that
Students define, describe, and classify matter based on physical properties of magnetism.
Students will stay engaged as they learn and discover all the properties magnets have. Very few metal objects are attracted to a magnet. Students will learn which types of metals are attracted
The students will discover that there are about 95 metals in the world but only three have the property of being a magnet or attracting to a magnetic. The molecules in the iron have the ability to line up in a positive to negative pattern and create a magnetic field.
