Children cannot see magnetic attraction, but they can easily observe its effects. Whet children's curiosity for experiments and science. Encourage them to explore magnetism at home.
Magnets are attracted to iron, steel, cobalt, and nickel. Magnet strengths vary.
Find two boxes. With Crayola® Markers, label one "Attracted to Magnets" and the other "Not Attracted to Magnets."
Collect small, safe items such as paper clips, rubber bands, blocks, toy cars, yarn, coins, and pinecones.
With a sturdy magnet, find out which objects are attracted by magnets and which are not. Sort objects in the boxes.
After experimenting with many things, describe the characteristics of objects that are (and are not) attracted by magnets. What is the same? What is different?
