Lab 1 - Testing Magnetism
-Students will predict if an object is magnetic or not magnetic then tests for accuracy.
Lab 2 - Floating Magnets
- Students will investigate and observe how magnets "repel" when like poles are lined up. (This activity works best with an unsharpened pencil and several donut magnets.)
Lab 3 - Breaking the Force
- Students will test how far apart to magnets can be and still be pulled together with attraction. Students will also investigate the transparency of some objects to a magnetic field.
