        Making Predictions about Magnets

        In this video segment from Teaching Elementary Physical Science, teacher Jeff Teixeira guides his fourth-grade students in making predictions about the effect of an electric current located near a magnetic compass needle. He introduces the experiment and asks the students to write down their predictions. He uses written predictions to help students focus, then runs a class discussion about the predictions. Teixeira strives to de-emphasize competition and encourage science as a collaborative effort.
