Description

Our brightly-colored Rainbow Magnets are perfect for small hands. A great teaching aid to help students discover that opposite poles attract and like poles repel. These durable, pinch-resistant magnets are enclosed in plastic for easy clean up. Students can conduct an investigation to compare the different strengths or directions of pushes and pulls on the motion of an object. How will the magnets interact? Can you make them "flip"? Countless explorations for young scientists! Bar magnets are 5.3 x 2.5 x 1.3 cm (2" x 1" x 0.5"). Not suitable for children under 3.

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

2-PS1-2

Students can use the Rainbow Bar Magnets to investigate and analyze data obtained from testing different materials to determine which materials have properties that are best suited for an intended purpose.

K-PS2-1

Students can use the Rainbow Bar 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 Rainbow Bar Magnets to investigate and 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 Rainbow Bar Magnets define a simple design problem that can be solved by applying scientific ideas about magnets.

4-ESS2-2

Students can do an activity with the Iron Filings with Rainbow Bar Magnets to analyze and interpret data from maps to describe patterns of Earth's features.

5-PS1-3

Students can use the Rainbow Bar Magnets for investigations to make observations and measurements to identify materials based on their properties.

3-5-ETS1-3

Students can use the Rainbow Bar Magnets to plan and carry out fair tests in which variables are controlled and failure points are considered and identifies aspects of a model or prototype that can be improved.

MS-PS1-3

Students can use the Rainbow Bar Magnets to gather and make sense of information during an investigation.

MS-PS2-3

Students can use the Rainbow Bar Magnets to ask questions about data to determine the factors that affect the strength of magnetic forces.

MS-PS2-5

Students can use the Rainbow Bar 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.

MS-ESS2-2

Students can do an activity with the Sealed Iron Filings with the Rainbow Bar Magnets to construct an explanation based on evidence for how geoscience's processes have changed Earth's surface at varying time and spatial scales.

HS-PS3-3

Students can use the Magnetic Wand 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 Rainbow Bar 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)

The Rainbow Bar Magnets includes a comprehensive instruction booklet that provides activities, data charts, scientific explanations and endless combinations to cover many science standards.

Students can use the Rainbow Bar Magnets to Develop a model to describe a phenomenon. Include careful determine the polarity of all the different types of magnets.

Students can use the magnets to test which materials are attracted to a magnet.

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