Magnetic Force Through Objects

edited by: William C. Ritz and William Straits

This activity focuses on exploring the magnetic force through objects by placing magnets in a small box. Slowly move the box about a half-inch above a pile of paper clips and watch the paper clips attach to the bottom of the box. This activity could be done again with different objects to help the students discover the objects a magnetic force goes through and the objects it does not. A materials list, internet resources, standards, and safety practices are provided. This book selection also includes the Table of Contents, Preface, About the Editors, Introduction, Simple Graphing for Young Children, Science Teaching Boards and Boxes, Basic Materials List, and Index.
