Questions magnetism electricity

  1. 1.     Magnetism   • How  do  magnets  act  when  they’re  close  to  one  another?     Why  do  you  think  that  happens?   • What  materials  are  magnets  attracted  to?     How  could  you  prove  that?   • What  happens  when  you  put  one  magnet  on  top  of  a  desk  and   another  under  the  desk  lid?  Why  does  this  happen?   • What  materials  can  magnetic  force  not  travel  through?     Why  do  you  think  this  happens?     Electricity   • What  materials  let  electricity  flow  through  them?     What  are  they  called?  What  are  they  made  from?   How  can  you  test  if  a  material  will  let  electricity  flow  through  it?   What  are  materials  that  don’t  let  electricity  pass  through  them   called?  What  are  they  made  from?   • How  does  electricity  flow  through  a  circuit?   • How  can  you  light  up  a  light  bulb?     What’s  important  to  make  the  light  bulb  work  in  a  circuit?   What  do  the  different  parts  of  the  circuit  (components)  do?   • How  can  you  make  two  light  bulbs  light  up  in  a  circuit?   • How  can  you  make  two  light  bulbs  shine  brightly  in  a  circuit?     What  is  the  difference  between  the  two  circuits?     Why  do  the  light  bulbs  not  light  up  with  the  same  brightness  in   the  two  circuits?     Create  your  own  questions  to  test:   • Think  of  a  question  that  you  would  like  to  investigate.   • Make  sure  your  question  can  be  tested  using  an  experiment.     It  should  not  be  a  question  that  you  can  answer  yes  or  no.   It  should  not  be  a  question  that  can  be  answered  by  looking  in  a   book  or  researching  the  topic.   • What  materials  will  you  need?   • How  will  you  set  up  the  experiment?   • How  will  you  make  sure  the  results  are  clear?   Remember  you  should  only  change  one  thing  (variable)  at  a  time.
