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 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 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 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 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 magnets to analyze and interpret data from maps to describe patterns of Earth's features.

MS-PS1-3

Students can use the magnets to gather and make sense of information during an investigation.

MS-PS2-3

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

MS-PS2-5

Students can use the 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 magnets to construct an explanation based on evidence for how geoscience's processes have changed Earth's surface at varying time and spatial scales.

DCI-MS/PS3.C: Relationship Between Energy and Forces.

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-PS3-5

The 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)

DCI/PS1.A

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

2-PS1-1

Matter can be described and classified by its observable properties.

S&E

Students can use the magnets to develop a model to describe a phenomenon. The sealed container of filings helps younger learners and prevents a mess, as they discover magnetic properties.

4-ESS2-2

Students can do an activity with the Iron Filings and a Ceramic Bar Magnet to model the Earth's magnet field. Place the bar magnet on a flat surface, then cover it with the Sealed Iron Filings to reveal the magnetic field. This helps students understand the North/South identification on maps.

MS-ESS2-2

The above activity can also model how over the course of Earth's history, the magnetic field of the poles have swapped location, based on magnetic readings of the Atlantic Ocean floor. Rotate the magnet 180 degrees to model the geologic history of the Earth's magnetic field.

DCI-PS1.A

Students can use the magnets as part of an investigation to understand that substances have characteristic physical and chemical properties.

DCI/HS-PS2.B

Investigations using the 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.
