“Magnets are objects with magnetic properties. They have two poles, called north and south, and they interact with other magnets and metals such as iron. They act over a distance.”
And this Science Bits video explores those pushes and pulls with a playful demonstration.
The components used in this video: Two magnets, a ramp, a non-metallic ball, a metallic ball, a compass, and a few fun sound effects.
A digital resource for science curriculum, Science Bits shares “over 1000 hours of prepared 5E lessons and 500 interactive 3D lab simulations, more than 1500 engaging short videos, and 3500 interactive exercises.”
