Reflection: Checks for Understanding May the Force Be With You! - Section 3: Active Engagement #1


As the students work to find a baseline for measuring the interruption of the magnetic force, I am able to check with them for their understanding on how to run the test while controlling variables. 

This is an important time in the lesson, as it is my opportunity to guide the students to work with the materials and set them up for success.

May the Force Be With You!

Unit 8: Magnets
Lesson 4 of 7

Objective: Students will be able to determine how to interrupt the force of magnetism and measure the force of magnetism.

Big Idea: This lesson is due to a student's question about how the force of his magnet was breaking when he moved his arm quickly. The motivation today is high because it is a student's idea.
