Metals ? They?re Electrifying  
Some materials conduct electricity and others don't. In this activity, students use a simple circuit detector to test a few common items to determine which of them conduct electricity.

Magnets Point the Way  
We use a compass to see which way is north, south, east, and west. When we use a compass we are actually using a magnet. The little moving pointer in a compass is actually a small magnet. The needle lines up and points in a certain direction because Earth itself has magnetism and acts like a magnet too. Students investigate to learn how a compass works.

Metals and Magnetism  
Metals are the only substances that are magnetic. The most,common magnetic metal is iron. Although few products are made of pure iron, a lot of products are made of steel. Since steel has a lot of iron in it, steel is attracted to a magnet. In this activity students investigate a wide range of materials to discover which ones are magnetic and which are not.

Magnetism Through and Through  
Magnets have the ability to attract certain metals like iron and steel. Metal paper clips are made from steel and should be attracted by a magnet. But can a magnet attract a paper clip through a liquid like water or even through a solid? In this activity students investigate some properties of metals and magnetism.

Magnets Coming and Going  
All magnets have two ends or poles. They are called the North pole and the South pole of the magnet. No matter how big or small the magnet is, it always has a north and a south pole. In this activity students make two magnets and see how the poles of one magnet interact with the poles of the other.
