The magnetism kit from ScienceWiz aims to educate children in the strong and mighty properties of magnets! Within this kit are the materials and instructions for 22 hands-on activities that help children build a foundation in one of the most essential science topics - magnetism. As children work through the activities, they will be able to build on their new knowledge as they discover that it gets progressively more challenging! Concepts such as attraction and repulsion are covered, as well as the idea of action at a distance, and children will even learn how to build an electromagnet which will give them the foundational knowledge to learn about how an electric motor operates. Other stimulating experiments include drawing with iron filings; levitating and bouncing rings; and playing with magnetic poles!
Designed to support learning right across the early years of primary school, this kit can be used by children aged 5-7 with appropriate adult supervision. It is recommended that experiments 1-15 be conducted in the early primary school years, and the following 7 more difficult experiments be performed in years 2-3, after revising their favourite experiments from Part 1.
