Use the 5E model to assess students' prior knowledge about magnetism.
I really like this lesson! This lesson has students constructing their own conceptual models of how magnets work and then making theories, testing the models, and adjusting them to fit the facts. The materials are fairly simple and inexpensive and this could be done in any classroom.

The teacher in this article used a lot of personal observations and experiences for students to develop their own knowledge base of facts about magnets. It is explained in a detailed 5E lesson plan. I believe this lesson plan could be used as low as third grade.
