Using bar magnets and iron filings, you and your students can explore the properties of magnetic fields, just like the one that surrounds the Earth.
Each group will need:
Create a magnetic field with electrical circuits.
Explore how the relationship between electricity and magnetism work to power an electric motor.
Build an electromagnet to demonstrate how electricity can be converted to magnetism.
