Jefferson Magnets

Fourth Grade Magnets and Electricity Study Guide!

QuestionAnswer
Can you draw a simple circuit? (your drawing should have a battery with a lightbulb connected by wire to either side of the battery)
Parallel Circuit A circuit with parallel rows with one bulb in each row. If you remove a bulb, the other rows will still light!
Series Circuit A circuit with more than one light bulb.
Conductors Items that electricity can easily travel through (water, metal, etc)
Insulators Items that electricity cannot travel through (yarn, fabric, rubber, etc.)
What happens when opposite magnet poles come together? They attract, or stick together
What happens when like magnetic poles come together? They repel
Why does static electricity cause things to stick together? Positive and negative charges are lost when items are rubbed together. The positive and negative charges then attract and the items stick together!
How can you make a temporary magnet? By rubbing a paperclip on a magnet, the atoms line up in the paperclip temporarily, creating a magnet.
