Electricity and Magnetism
Grade Four Science
Go back to the Harcourt Teacher Leadership Center main page.
Welcome! My fourth graders at Kearny Academic Plus
Elementary School in Philadelphia learned about electricity and magnetism
this year. They experimented with magnetism and electricity, and
they explored the relationship between electricity and magnetism.
In addition, the students learned about Benjamin Franklin and the colonial
period. They read many nonfiction books about these topics and communicated
their understandings through experimentation, writing, drawing, and discussion.
This web page is an account of what we learned and did this year.
Generous founding support for the Harcourt
Teacher Leadership Center and the Harcourt Learning Labs was provided by
