Supports the grade 7 electromagnetism unit and the Big Idea:  The electromagnetic force produces both electricity and magnetism.  FortisBC has developed an electromagnetism module for teachers in its electricity services area.  It includes six downloadable lessons (energyleaders.ca) to explore magnets, circuits, electromagnets and different methods of electricity generation with overviews, teacher backgrounders, curriculum connections, slideshows, assessment tools and student handouts. Classroom teachers receive an electricity kit including hands-on materials for students to explore electromagnetism and electricity. The workshop provides an introduction to the Energy Leaders online platform and other materials for grade 7 classrooms, including a five-lesson climate change module, conservation action planning materials and natural gas and electrical safety lessons.
 
Please note that only teachers in school districts in the FortisBC electricity services area will receive classroom electricity kits.
