Assessment: - To assess the students’ understanding, use the following methods: 1. Observations: Observe students’ participation and engagement during class activities. 2. Worksheet: Provide a worksheet with questions related to magnets for students to complete individually. 3. Group Discussion: Engage students in a group discussion to share their understanding of magnets.

Differentiation: - To cater to different learning styles and abilities, consider the following differentiation strategies: 1. Visual Learners: Use visual aids such as diagrams, pictures, and videos to explain the concepts of magnets. 2. Kinesthetic Learners: Provide hands-on activities where students can explore magnets and test their properties. 3. Verbal Learners: Encourage students to explain their understanding of magnets through class discussions and questioning.

Plenary: - Summarize the main points of the lesson by reviewing the properties of magnets and how they attract or repel certain materials. - Ask students to share one interesting thing they learned about magnets during the lesson. - Conclude the lesson by emphasizing the importance of magnets in our daily lives and how they are used in various applications.
