This lesson is based on an infographic about magnets. The infographics contains a range of facts and statistics as well as some information about magnets and how they are used.
In the lesson students will find out about the different uses of magnets and why they are so important.
The materials in this plan can be used in different ways. The first four tasks can be used independently as a simple reading and discussion lesson.
The final three tasks can be used selectively as follow up tasks or you can use all three tasks as an ongoing project over the course of a number of lessons.
This lesson contains seven tasks:
A discussion task that gets students thinking about magnets and how they are used in our lives.
A reading task that develops students’ abilities to read and check information.
A reading task that encourages students to scan read for specific information.
A discussion task that gives students the opportunity to respond to the information more personally.
An online research task that gets students to follow up on what they have read and find out more about magnets.
A online research task that gets students to create a questionnaire to find what people know about magnets.
A writing task which gives students the opportunity to consolidate their learning in the form of a blog article.
