Lab-Aids Magnetic Fields and Forces
In these two activities, students explore magnets and magnetic fields, particularly Earth's magnetic field.
Manufacturer: Lab-Aids 217
The first activity provides students with a hands-on experience that allows them to develop operational definitions of magnets, magnetic poles, and magnetic fields. They continue their exploration of magnetism by examining the effects of Earth's magnetic field as evidenced by the existence of naturally magnetic rocks and the behavior of navigational compasses.
