Standard III - Earth Surface

Standard: Students will understand that magnetism can be observed when there is an interaction between the magnetic fields of magnets or between a magnet and material made of iron.

Objective 1: Investigate and compare the behavior of magnIetism using magnets.
Objective 2: Describe how the magnetic field of Earth and a magnet are similar.


Science Benchmark
Earth and some earth materials have magnetic properties. Without touching them, a magnet attracts things made of iron and either pushes or pulls on other magnets. Electricity is a form of energy. Current electricity can be generated and transmitted through pathways. Some materials are capable of carrying electricity more effectively than other materials. Static electricity is a result of objects being electrically charged. Without touching them, materials that are electrically charged may either push or pull other charged materials.
