This is a fun, hands-on, exploration science (and math) experiment!
Students are able to interact with different magnets and ask questions about why different magnets are able to hold or attract a different amount of paperclips. They are also able to use math skills and graph/analyze data they collect!
This is a great activity to use for science centers, small group work, or partner work!
It is easy and quick to set up and prep for.
