University of California - Berkeley - Exploring Magnetism: A Teacher's Magnetism Activity Guide for Grades 6-9

Through the University of California - Berkeley's magnetism activity guide "students will act as scientists discovering magnetic fields and electromagnetism through inquiry and measurement." The materials, which can be viewed either in pdf of html format, are divided into three activity sessions and one chapter containing background information, outside resources, and a glossary for educators. By the end of the lessons, students will have designed a magnetometer boom, which is an integral piece of a spacecraft. This guide is a great learning experience because it relates the activities to real problems faced by scientists involved in NASA's STEREO mission.
