Magnetic Moments for Learning
Magnets are much more fun than things to hang on a refrigerator. At their best, they provide the strongest relevant and hands-on ways to explore and build a foundation for understanding the invisible fundamental forces of nature. Explore ways elementary students can measure and test magnetic forces as you also engage in designing ways to test and build with magnets. These investigations are major "attractions" for your students as they build their understanding using their own experiences and data.
