This activity provides a fun way to explore magnetism. It involves the simple task of using a magnet to guide a coin through a maze drawn on the side of a plastic bottle. There are plenty of opportunities to think and talk about how magnetism works, and why magnets only attract certain materials.
- Investigate the magnetic properties of different materials
- Use observation and questioning (curiosity) skills
- See how magnetism has useful and relevant applications in our everyday lives
