An Online Treasure Hunt
For Fourth Year High School (Science)
Electric generators, transformers, rechargeable batteries. These are just some applications of electromagnetic induction.
In today’s lesson we will find out who discovered electromagnetic induction, what it is, and why it is considered “a landmark in applied science”.
The lesson requires you to browse through some Web pages in which you will find out something about electromagnetic induction. A series of questions will guide your reading. Answers to the questions can be found in the Web pages, which are listed at random (and not according to the order of questions). After successfully finding all the answers, move on to the Big Question.
You will work in groups of three or four. Assign one group member to take down notes/answers and another member to work on the keyboard. But all of you should read the Web pages and try to locate the answers to the questions asked.
To conclude our brief study of Faraday’s discovery, do ONE of the following:
Make a 5-minute skit
dramatizing how Faraday discovered electromagnetic induction. Perform the skit
B. Write an imaginary interview of Faraday and then enact the interview (to last not more than 5 minutes) for the rest of the class.
Make sure all members of your group participate in preparing the skit or interview. You will perform your skit or interview during the next class meeting.
Be creative. Bring Faraday to life.
