Common Core Standards 2017-2018 Print Unit 8
Middle - Fine Arts - Grade 7 - Unit 8
Unseen Forces: Gravity & Magnetism
In this unit students will study the two invisible forces of gravity and magnetism. Students will not only be able to demonstrate basic understanding of how gravity effects their everyday life, but also phenomena that are due to the force of gravity. With magnetism students will utilize experimentation in order to learn more about magnetism and the fields that surround a magnet. By the end of the unit, students will be expected to be able to compare and contrast gravity and magnetism.

MS-PS2-3.

Ask questions about data to determine the factors that affect the strength of electric and magnetic forces.


MS-PS2-4.

Construct and present arguments using evidence to support the claim that gravitational interactions are attractive and depend on the masses of interacting objects.


MS-PS2-5.

 

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.
