Gently tap the table until a clear pattern is formed. Pour Iron fillings around the magnet. Place the magnets as shown below: 2. . Draw your Observations.ACTIVITY 1 – MAGNETIC FIELD MAPPING  Materials: Bar Magnets Iron Fillings U – shaped Magnets Paper and Marker  Procedures: 1. 3. 4.

.

 2.PROCESSING – activity 1  1. What can you say about the magnetic field of a magnet? . Compare the magnetic field patterns for different set ups. indicate about the strength of the magnets?  3. What do the magnetic field patterns.

.

. observe the deflection of the compass needle. 3. observe the deflection of the compass needle. Illustrate your observations. Connect the dry cells and the solid wire with the connecting wires 2. Reverse the terminals of the dry cells. Illustrate your observations. Move the magnetic compass around the solid wire.ACTIVITY 2 – CURRENT CARRYING WIRE Materials: Dry Cells 6 in Solid Wire #14 Magnetic Compass Connecting Wires Procedures: 1.

Illustrate your observations. observe the deflection of the compass needle.  3. observe the deflection of the compass needle.ACTIVITY 3 – CURRENT CARRYING COIL  Materials: Dry Cells Magnetic Compass  24 in Stranded wire Connecting Wires  Procedures:  1. Loop around the stranded wire in the magnetic compass.  2. . Illustrate your observations. Reverse the terminals of the dry cells. Connecty it with the dry cells using the connecting wires.

.

PROCESSING – activity 2 and 3  1. What happens to the compass needle as you reverse the terminals of the dry cells? . Where is the direction of the current in the wire? The magnetic field?  2.

Place the u-shaped magnet and observe how the solid wire moves. Make a stand that will hold the 6 in Solid wire like a swing. Illustrate your observations. . 4. Connect it with the dry cells using the connecting wires. 3. 2. Reverse the terminals of the dry cells.ACTIVITY 4 – ELECTROMAGNETIC SWING  Materials: Dry CellsU-shaped magnets 6 in Solid wire #20 Connecting Wires  Procedures: 1.

Reverse the terminals of the dry cells. 3. Illustrate your observations. 4. 2.ACTIVITY 5 – ELECTRIC MOTOR  Materials: Dry Cells U-shaped magnets Copper wire strands Connecting Wires  Procedures: 1. . Make a stand that will hold your motor so that it can freely rotate. Place the u-shaped magnet and observe the rate and the direction of its rotation. Connect it with the dry cells using the connecting wires.

.

PROCESSING – activity 4 & 5  1. What do you think will happen when we increase the loops of your electric motor model? If we add stronger magnets? . Why did the solid wire swing? And the electric motor rotate?  2.

students will be evaluated based on their outputs (electric motor and em swing) .APPLICATION  Performance – task .Rubrics is required .

CLOSURE  If there is a relationship that exists between electricity and magnetism. can electricity be produced just by the presence of magnets and conductors? .
