(A2) Like Poles

Magnets can attract and repel other magnets. Observe the magnet at your table. Each end of a magnet is called a pole. There is a north pole, labeled N, and a south pole, labeled S. North and North (N and N) poles are like poles. South and South (S and S) poles are like poles. Like means same poles. The poles have different forces. If you put the ends of the poles of two magnets close to each other the magnets will either push away (repel) from each other or pull toward (attract) each other. You are going to create a 1-minute video of magnets repelling with like poles. Your video clips will be evidence that like poles repel. Hands-on Investigation 1. Play with the two bar magnets. 2. Put the N and N poles together. What happens? Do they attract or repel? 3. Put the S and S poles together. What happens? Do they attract or repel? 4. Record a video of the two bar magnets repelling with like poles. 5. Use the magnets in the bag to record 3-5 videos of magnets repelling with like poles. Required Content o What is a pole? (picture of a bar magnet with the N and S poles circled/labeled) o What are like poles? (labeled picture of two bar magnets with like poles) o What happens?
