Science Lesson 3: Ask Questions about Causes and Effects of Electric and Magnetic Interactions

Hello Scientists! You will get a chance to Ask Questions about Causes and Effects of Electric and Magnetic Interactions. Do these steps: 1. Study: Study the images and listen to the voice recording in this activity to learn about Electric and Magnetic Interactions 2. Question: After studying and learning about Electric and Magnetic Interactions, ask yourself some questions you could answer through experimentation or investigation. Use these questions as an example: -How does the size of a balloon affect electric interactions? -How close does a charged plastic rod have to be to attract bits of paper? 3. Plan: Plan an activity to show Causes and Effects of Electric and Magnetic Interactions and use these examples for help: -Blow up a balloon and charge it by rubbing it on your hair and try to see which types of objects it can attract to -Blow up balloons to different sizes and charge them by rubbing them on your hair and try to see if size affects how they attract to different objects -Rub a plastic rod or stick with a cloth and see how close you have to get it to attract small bits of paper -Use 2 different magnets and see how close you have to bring them to pull them to each other or push them apart 4. Conduct and Share the Results of the Experiment: You can do the experiment and share what you learned with the class by telling us about it during our morning meeting or other whole class time, taking a photo, or recording a video
