A Semi-Detaied Lesson Plan in General Sciences

(March 30, 2015)



Students must be able to do the following at the end of the lesson with at least 75%
a. familiarize themselves with the idea of magnetism,
b. identify what a magnetic force is and,
c. enumerate the most common label of magnetic materials.
Subject Matter
Magnetic Force (Force and Motion)

- PowerPoint Presentation
- Neodymium magnet
- Labels of random magnetic and non-magnetic materials
- Cartolina
- Masking tape
Values: discipline, diligence, zeal


A. Routinary Matters
- Greet the students and ask them to clean their places and to get ready for the lesson
while she is preparing the presentation.
B. Motivation
- Ask the students if they are able to identify if onjects are magnetic or non-magnetic.
- Then form the students into groups of five and give each group printout of names of
different objects they see everyday and a cartolina with labels magnetic and nonmagnetic printed out on them. The groups will be given time to classify the objects in the
printouts given to them to either magnetic or non-magnetic.
- Afterwards, let the students check for themselves if their predictions are correct or not
by having the actual objects and a strong magnet and letting the students check for
C. Presentation
- Begin the lesson by stating the objectives needed to be learned for this lesson.
- Show a slide explaining the concept of magnetism as the physical phenomenon arising
from the force between objects that either attract or repel other materials.
- Show a slide determining magnetic force, responsible for the action occuring between
magnetic objects.
- Show a slide showing the names of the most common magnetic materials named:

Ferromagnetic materials are the ones normally thought of as magnetic;

they are attracted to a magnet strongly enough that the attraction can be
Paramagnetic substances, such as platinum, aluminum, and oxygen, are
weakly attracted to either pole of a magnet.
Diamagnetic means repelled by both poles. Compared to paramagnetic
and ferromagnetic substances, diamagnetic substances, such as carbon,
copper, water, and plastic, are even more weakly repelled by a magnet.

D. Application
- Students will try to identify the most common magnetic activities in their surroundings
and share with the class their observations.
E. Evaluation
- Students will answer a 10-item activity prepared by the teacher in relation to Magnetic
Force. (See attached file)
F. Assignment
- Ask the students to write a 5-sentence paragraph answering this question: What is the
difference between gravity and magnetism?
