What is Electricity?
Electricity is the form of energy. It is the flow of electrons.
Electricity is a electric current used by a source of power.
What is Magnetism?
Magnetism is which there is an attraction to unlike poles like
north and south or south and north. Magnets stick to nickel, iron,
and cobalt. Magnets can also make a magnetic field when the
atoms line up or move in the same directions.
How Does Electricity Work?
Electricity works because when the electrons flow through a wire that
that creates a circuit. A circuit is the path for electrons. Electricity also
uses power lines and power plants to send electricity to homes.
How Do Magnets work?
Magnetism is metal that attract each other or repel each other. North
and south attract each other but north and north or south and south
will not stick. Opposite poles attract each other but same poles
How are Electricity & Magnetism connected?
Magnetism and electricity are connected
because magnets can make electricity and
electricity can make magnetism. You can
make magnets by some kind of special wire
that are called coil wire. For example, when
you wrap the coil around the nail for a long
time, the atoms will line up, and that’s how
the nail gets magnetized. Magnets can make
make a electricity by flowing electrons. The
magnet makes the electrons flow faster by
moving the magnet back and forth on the
wire where the electrons travel, so that
What Are Some Practical Uses of Electricity & Magnetism?
A MRI is an example of using
electricity and magnets because
this machine uses magnets that it’s
magnetic field is 5,000 times
stronger than the earth’s magnetic
field so that’s how they could see
inside a person’s body action and
see what is happening in there.
Many people are worried because
everyone in the earth is not sure if it
is dangerous or not.
What is Schematic Drawing?
Schematic drawing is a diagram or a simple sketch that we use to
show what we made or show what we will make in simple form.
What is to Repel?
Repel is to push each other away. For example, the two magnets
magnets repelled each other because they were both the same poles.
What is a Compass?
A compass is a tool to see which way to go. If the poles change into
south and north, the compass will point south not north as it always
What is Force?
Force is to push or pull. It is
strength and energy.
For example, when the magnets
are the same poles and they push
and repel each other, that is
force. Or when something else
pulls or pushes something, that is
What is a Circuit?
A circuit is the path for
flowing electrons. A
wire is an example of a
This is a circuit…..
