Some forces act by touching, while other forces can act without touching.
Apply knowledge of Earth’s magnetic fields to successfully complete an orienteering challenge.
Magnetic, electrical, and gravitational forces can act at a distance.
Earth has a magnetic field that is detectable at the surface with a compass.
The flow of current in an electric circuit depends upon the components of the circuit and their arrangement, such as in series or parallel. Electricity flowing through an electrical circuit produces magnetic effects in the wires.
