My Observation Of A Magnet

Good Essays
The day before in class I’ll see what words students think of when they hear the term magnets. I’ll then explain that every magnet has a north and south pole. Finally I’ll demonstrate what happens when like poles are brought together and what happens when opposite poles are. I will continuously go around the room from group to group to make sure the students are on task and understand what their objectives are. The last ten minutes of class each student will answer 5 simple questions on an exit slip.
I’ll start class by demonstrating the activities so the students understand what to do and won’t jump any without understanding it. They’ll also be given instructions that will walk them through step by step. I have put the instructions below in paragraph form so the

They’ll use a nail and a battery to create a magnetic field. It’ll turn the nail into a magnet. Students should be sure to write down their observations throughout the experiment. Students will wrap the center portion of the wire around the nail 10 times so that it forms a coil. They should have extra wire at both ends. Then the students will attach one end of the wire to the (+) terminal of the battery. Then, attach the other end of the wire to the (-) terminal. Bring the end of it close to the paper clips, making sure that the wires stay attached to the battery. Write your observations in your science notebook. Repeat the steps again, but this time wind the wire around the nail 20 times. Record your observations in your science notebook. Repeat the steps one more time, but this time wind the wire around the nail 30 times. Record your observations in your science notebook. When the experiment is done students will be able to understand that electric, and magnetic forces between a pair of objects does not require that the objects be in contact. They’ll also understand that there is certain things that can be done that strengthen and weaken magnetic and electric

    Each day, I created an anchor chart and called on students to think of words with the current sound of the word family (at, am, an, ap). After we gathered 6-10 words on our anchor chart, I asked them to sit at their desks and I passed out a workshop for them to complete that corresponded with the current word family that we were working on. I would give them about 15 minutes or so to work on this solo, then I drew sticks to pair each student with a partner so that they could…

    Some ways Mrs. Crawford plans to implement learning standards and GLE’s is by placing the codes in her lesson plan so that she knows she is covering those subjects. Before the school year begins, all the first grade teachers meet together and develop an order they want to complete the standards in throughout the year to build their individual lesson plans off. This helps make sure each teacher is on track and meeting those learning standards requirements. They also develop objective tests that use three, two, one instead of actual grades. All first grade teachers give the same objective tests each quarter.…

    Rationale: Going through elementary school I remember doing the 5E model during science. My teacher had all the students engaged during science and I was eager to learn more. Now that I am learning about the 5E inquiry model it makes me realize that students need to be engaged in their learning. I chose this question because I have done some previous lesson plans using the 5E model. I like to teach students by getting them active and having them do a lot of the work instead of listening to me talk the whole time.…

    Once a week, my teacher tested my classmates and I on our ability to multiply by giving us a quiz, of which consisted of twelve randomized multiplication problems associated with a particular number. After distributing a quiz to each student, my teacher set her timer for one minute. In that minute, she expected us to complete the quiz in its entirety, without flaw. If a flaw were found upon grading, meaning that at least one answer was marked incorrect, we would fail the quiz for that week, and ultimately be denied a sticker. This sticker symbolized our comprehension of the material, and was utilized to track our progression on a large chart in the back of the classroom.…
