Design process - compass
To conclude our study on magnetic forces, students will be asked to make a compass for their design process. On Tuesday, students will be put into groups and asked to plan out their project. They will be required to bring their materials in on Wednesday to begin construction. They will have two full afternoons to complete their project by 3:30 on Thursday. Students have reviewed that the compass needle will need to be a magnetic metal (iron, nickel, cobalt) in order to be attracted to the North pole. I have included a few websites below to give ideas as to types of materials that students can use.
**All material need to be everyday items (nothing premade) and handed in to me on Wednesday. Please let me know if you have any questions!
