Electricity and Magnetism
BIGidea: Magnetism & electricity each have their own unique properties & operate by specific rules for many practical uses.
3.01 Observe and investigate the pull of magnets on all materials made of iron and the pushes or pulls on other magnets.
3.06 Describe and identify materials that are conductors and nonconductors of electricity
3.03 Design and test an electric circuit as a closed pathway including an energy source, energy conductor and an energy receiver.
3.05 Describe and explain parts of a bulb.
3.08 Observe and investigate the ability of electric circuits to produce light, heat, sound and magnetic effects.
3.07 Observe and investigate that parallel and series circuits have different characteristics.
Electricity: A form of energy that can produce light, heat, and magnetism.
Electricity receiver: A component that uses the electricity from a
source to make something happen.
Electricity source: Something that provides electric energy to make
Magnet: An object that sticks to iron.
Magnetism: A property of certain kinds of materials that causes
them to attract iron or steel.
Circuit: A pathway for the flow of electricity.
Closed circuit: A complete circuit through which electricity flows.
Conductor: A substance, commonly a metal such as copper or aluminum, through which electricity will flow.
Current: The flow of electricity through a conductor.
