"Hands-On Science: Electricity and Magnetism" offers 16 ready-to-use activities that help your middle school and early high school students build a solid understanding of the physical world around them. This book includes activities related to a force of nature, namely, electromagnetism. Every effort has been made to use readily available, inexpensive equipment. Activities range from the simple (playing with magnets and magnetic equipment) to the complex (creating electricity by means of thermocouples and working with photovoltaic cells). There is something for every student. Each activity has a teacher resource section that includes, besides helpful hints and suggestions, a scoring rubric, a quiz, and Internet connections for those students who wish to carry out the Follow-Up Activities. Instructional objectives and the National Science Standards that apply to each activity are provided in order for you to meet state and local expectations. Softcover, 96 pages.
