What happens if you put two magnets together? What objects are attracted to a magnet? How strong is a magnet? And how do we use magnets in our everyday lives? Using items that kids can easily find around their homes, young students will get the chance to transform into scientists and carry out step-by-step experiments to answer these intriguing questions. Along the way, children will pick up important scientific skills as they investigate magnets, make and record observations, and draw conclusions. Magnetsincludes at least seven experiments with detailed, age-appropriate instructions, great facts and background information, a "Conclusions" section to pull all the concepts investigated in the book together, and a glossary of science words. Colorful, dynamic designs and images truly put theFUNinto FUN-damental Experiments!
