This is an activity about magnetic fields. Learners will use various magnets, magnetic film, and a compass to see and illustrate what magnetic fields look like. This is the fourth activity as part of the iMAGiNETICspace: Where Imagination,... (View More) Magnetism, and Space Collide educator's guide. Instructions for downloading the iBook educator's guide and the associated Transmedia book student guide are available at the resource link. (View Less)
Two comic characters, Camilla Corona, a rubber chicken, and Colours O'IRIS, a peacock, explore questions relating to colors of light from the Sun. This comic is part of the series Tales from Stanford Solar.
This is an activity about electromagnetism. Learners will set up a simple circuit using a battery, wire, and knife switch, and then use a compass to map the magnetic field lines surrounding the wire. Next, they will add a coil of wire to the simple... (View More) circuit and map the magnetic fields again. This is the second lesson in the second session of the Exploring Magnetism teachers guide.

This is an activity about electromagnetism. Learners will use a compass to map the magnetic field lines surrounding a coil of wire that is connected to a battery. This activity requires a large coil or spool of wire, a source of electricity such as... (View More) 3 D-cell batteries or an AC to DC power adapter, alligator-clipped wire, and magnetic compasses. This is the third lesson in the second session of the Exploring Magnetism teachers guide. (View Less)
This resource consists of a template that can be used by students to cut out a book in a rainbow shape. It is suggested that students write a book documenting what they know about the visible spectrum. The resource is part of the teacher's guide... (View More) accompanying the video, NASA Why Files: The Case of the Mysterious Red Light. Lesson objectives supported by the video, additional resources, teaching tips and an answer sheet are included in the teacher's guide. (View Less)
This activity introduces learners to the visible portion of electromagnetic spectrum. A visible spectrum is projected in the classroom using a diffraction grating and learners reproduce it using colored pencils. Filters are also used to block... (View More) portions of the spectrum. This activity is available on the back of the Electromagnetic Spectrum Poster which is a collaborative product of Astrophysics missions and staff comprising the Astrophysics SEPOF. The Astrophysics SEPOF is headquartered at the Space Telescope Science Institute, operated for NASA by the Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy (AURA).
