Reflection: Modeling May the Force Be With You! - Section 2: Mini Lesson


This section of the lesson is my chance to discuss variable, which will play an important role in today's investigation. I will be able to show the students how to set up for the experiment and set the stage without giving them any answers. 

I want the children to be successful in their work and I want them to control how they investigate, but I do want to model some of the stages of the investigation to remove unnecessary obstacles.  I will also be able to encourage the students to create theories or predictions about the questions.

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.
