Charge Interactions

Has your class been repelled by your previous magnetism lesson plan? Try a fun interactive instead! The activity, part of the Static Electricity series, challenges scholars to infer the charges of a group of magnets based upon their interaction with one another. Three levels of questioning help you determine their level of understanding with ease.
