MD.5.0. Physics: Students will use scientific skills and processes to explain the interactions of matter and energy and the energy transformations that occur
5.C.2. Electricity and Magnetism: Investigate and provide evidence that electricity requires a closed loop in order to produce measurable effects.
5.C.2.b. Investigate and describe (orally or with diagrams) how to light a light bulb or sound a buzzer given a battery, wires, and light bulb or buzzer.
5.C.2.c. Describe and compare the path of electricity (circuit) within this system that caused the light to light or the buzzer to sound to those that do not affect the light or buzzer.
5.C.2.e. Provide evidence from observations and investigations that electrical circuits require a complete loop through which electricity can pass.
5.C.3. Electricity and Magnetism: Cite evidence supporting that forces can act on objects without touching them.
5.C.3.c. Compare a compass to a magnet based on observations of the effect a variety of objects (metallic or non-metallic; those made with iron or other metals; and magnets) have on a compass.
5.C.3.e. Investigate and describe how electricity in a wire affects the needle of a compass.
5.C.3.f. Describe how to make a simple electromagnet with a battery, a nail, and wire.
