In this Unit, the students focus on materials that are magnetic or those that can hold an electric charge. They will investigate ways in which different materials affect magnetic strength and electric charge. They will learn that every magnet has two poles, and that the strength of a magnet depends on the type and combinations of the various materials from which it is made.
The students will also describe their observations of static electricity and the conditions that affect it. Through these observations the students will increase their knowledge about the properties of materials that make them useful for specific purposes.
