Paramagnetism: Compounds  
Vials of a number of compounds (NaCl, MnSO4, FeSO4, CoCl2, NiSO4, ZnSO4, K4Fe(CN)6, [Co(NH3)6]Cl3, [Ni(NH3)6]Cl2, and H2O) are hung from a thread. When a magnet is brought near, some of the vials are attracted.

Paramagnetism: Oxidation States of Manganese  
Manganese(III) oxide, with 4 unpaired electrons per Mn atom, is more strongly attracted to a magnet than is manganese(IV) oxide, with only 3 unpaired electrons per Mn atom. Potassium permanganate, a compound of Mn(VII), has no unpaired electrons and is not attracted to a magnet.

Building a Successful Middle School Outreach Effort: Microscopy Camp  R. Lee Penn, Leslie Flynn, and Page Johnson
Microscopy Camp is a middle school outreach program designed to introduce and reinforce concepts regarding the atomic structure of crystals. Students synthesize magnetite nanoparticles and characterize them using light, scanning electron, and high-resolution transmission electron microscopy.

Make a Balloon Ec-Static  
In this activity, students create static electricity by rubbing a balloon on their hair or clothing. When you rub a balloon on hair, shirt, or sweater, the balloon will attract things toward it. The rubbing scrubs electrons off and they collect on the surface of the balloon. ,

Static Strength Tester  
In this activity, students make a static strength tester by suspending a Styrofoam ball from a string. When the ball is brought near static-charged balloon, it is repelled. How much it is repelled is a function of the static charge strength.
Atomic Properties / Structure
The Great Electron Rip-Off  
In this activity, students explore static electricity using transparent tape. When two pieces of tape are placed on a table top and then ripped up, they repel each other when brought close. This is because they lost electrons when they were pulled from the table. Since they have the same charge, they repel each other.
