This Science Video Worksheet is one page and has an answer key in a very simple format that is designed for quick correction.

The video is an introduction to magnets for Elementary and Middle School students. There are no formulas or math in the video; we illustrate magnitude using qualitative demonstrations and avoid formal measurements.

We made this video and it is free to access on our YouTube channel, which is designated for children's content: Intro to Magnets for Elementary School students and above. NGSS 3-PS2-3, 5-PS1-3, MS-PS2-5 - YouTube

For this video's content, we have noted the following Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS): 3-PS2-3, 5-PS1-3, MS-PS2-5

This may be useful for in-class or at home completion. It may be convenient for lesson planning for a substitute teacher, especially if needed on short notice.

Compared with a lecture or textbook, our videos are designed to be a slower pace, so they are less intense. Students may find them most helpful to view the night before a topic is introduced in class so that they are familiar with the vocabulary and key concepts. Many of our videos have footage of rare views or events, so that they are somewhat edutainment in style to make them enjoyable to watch at home.

Best wishes,

The staff at

Experiment with magnets to determine how distance affects magnetic attraction.
Determine that only certain types of objects are attracted to magnets.
Ask questions about data to determine the factors that affect the strength of electric and magnetic forces.
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.
Ask questions to determine cause and effect relationships of electric or magnetic interactions between two objects not in contact with each other.
Forces that act at a distance (electric and magnetic) can be explained by fields that extend through space and can be mapped by their effect on a test object (a ball, a charged object, or a magnet, respectively).
