Learning With Magnets

Magnets are multipurpose - they can be tokens from trips abroad, useful to prop items up on surfaces such as the fridge, and also for teaching children about magnetism!

In this activity, children will be introduced to the magic of magnets, and be able to familiarise themselves with how they work, and what materials and objects they will stick to. 

Before your child goes around the house testing it out, try to get them to hypothesise whether or not they think the magnet will stick!
