Buzzing Stunt Magnets (Set of 2) NGSS

This is a great puzzler for students.

Description

When two magnets are attracted to each other, you know there's likely to be a collision. Our Buzzing Stunt Magnets do something you may not expect - they scream! Toss these two unique magnets into the air, or lay them on a low friction surface about 15 cm apart. As they collide, they produce a high-pitched clattering sound. Some say it sounds like a cicada or high voltage sparking. We say it's amazing! What makes the sound? Why does one magnet turn when the other is spun around? This is a great puzzler for students. Critical thinking and problem solving ahead!

My 3-year-old grandson loves playing with these magnets, and so do I.

The buzzing stunt magnets are a blast! I bought them to use in my relationship workshops to remind people how we are magnetically drawn to another and how in the beginning we can't stay away and we say so much... then.... Thanks a bunch!

NGSS

This product will support your students' understanding of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)*, as shown in the table below.

Elementary Middle School High School

K-PS2-1

Students can use the Buzzing Stunt Magnets to plan and conduct an investigation to compare the effects of different strengths or different directions of pushes and pulls on the motion of an object.

2-PS1-2

Students can use the Buzzing Stunt Magnets in an investigation and then analyze data obtained from testing different materials to determine which materials have properties that are best suited for an intended purpose.

3-PS2-4

Students can use the Buzzing Stunt Magnets in an investigation to define a simple design problem that can be solved by applying scientific ideas about magnets.

MS-PS2-3

Students can use the Buzzing Stunt Magnets in an investigation to ask questions about data to determine the factors that affect the strength of magnetic forces.

MS-PS2-5

Students can use the Buzzing Stunt Magnets to conduct an investigation and evaluate the experimental design to provide evidence that fields exist between objects exerting forces on each other even though the objects are not in contact.

DCI/MS.PS3.C

When two objects interact, each one exerts a force on the other that can cause energy to be transferred to or from the object.

HS-PS3-3

Students can use the Buzzing Stunt Magnets in the design of a device that works with given constraints to convert one form of energy into another form of energy.

HS-PS3-5

The Buzzing Stunt Magnets can be used to develop and model how two objects interacting through magnetic fields, illustrates the forces between objects and the changes in energy of the objects due to the interaction.

Suggested Science Idea(s)

K-PS2-1

Students can use the Buzzing Stunt Magnets and other types of magnets to plan and conduct an investigation on the strength of the pushes and pull and exert on objects. The buzzing of the magnets becomes part of the investigation.

DCI/PS1.A

Each pure substance has characteristic physical and chemical properties that can be used to identify it.

2-PS1-2

Matter can be described and classified by its observable properties. Students can use the Buzzing Stunt Magnets to test for materials that are attracted to a magnet.

MS-PS2-5

The Buzzing Stunt Magnets is a wonderful tool to show the interaction of magnets without contact of those magnets.

HS-PS3-3

Students can use the Buzzing Stunt Magnets in the design of a device such as a Rube Goldberg machine.

DCI-HS/PS2.B

Investigations using the Buzzing Stunt Magnets will demonstrate the attraction and repulsion between electric charges at the atomic scale explain the structure, properties, and transformations of matter, as well as the contact forces between material objects.

DCI-PS1.A

Each pure substance has characteristic physical and chemical properties that can be used to identify it.

S&E

Students can use the Buzzing Stunt Magnets to Develop a model to describe a phenomenon. The buzzing of the magnets becomes part of the investigation.
