Manic Monday FREEBIE #3

My kiddos have a blast exploring with magnets!  Yours will too with this
FREE Magnet Sorting Experiment!

Here is an experiment we use to learn which items
are attracted to magnets and which items are not.
It is always interesting to see what items the students predict will be attracted to magnets. I am always surprised at the misconceptions. One item they often incorrectly predict as one that WILL be attracted to a magnet is the copper penny. They seem to assume that ALL metals are attracted to magnets. We even get out one of each coin and take the investigation that much farther. 

This is one of 5 experiments in my newest product
just recently uploaded to TPTand TN.
