In this activity students will explore a variety of objects and determine whether in our environment if more things are magnetic or not magnetic. Students can use a bin of objects provided by the teacher or the teacher can take students out on a "field trip" around the school and outdoors to test objects. This could also be sent home as a homework assignment.
As students test objects, they will create a bar chart and have a simple representation of whether more objects are magnetic or not.
This activity is part of the Exploring Magnetism bundle
which includes two additional magnetism activities suitable for the younger grades.
