Magnets and Motors is about electricity and magnetism and how they work together. This basic relationship has made possible the invention of many useful devices, including electric motors and generators. Students in 5th and 6th grades learn how people discovered the force of magnetism and how some animals—the loggerhead turtle, for example—use this force to navigate great distances. Students will also read about how scientists and inventors harnessed the power of magnetism to help bring electricity to broad areas—and about what happens when this power fails.
