Magnets Push, Magnets Pull by Mark Weakland
1. Is it magnetic? I assembled trays containing both magnetic and non-magnetic objects. The children each chose a magnetic wand and held them over the objects to see if they would stick.
2. Magnetic Marble Art – There were two options for making art with the marbles: (1) Use a spoon to take a paint covered marble from the paint bowl, put in on the paper plate, and then hold the plate while waving the wand underneath. (2) Squirt a very small blob of paint on the plate, put a clean marble in it, then hold the plate and wave the wand underneath.
