What you get
A boxed set of 2 large horseshoe magnets (marked with North and South poles), 2 magnetic balls, 2 star magnets, 2 magnetic rings, 2 U shaped magnets (marked with North and South poles) and a magnetic wand.
How does it work?
Wave your magnets over all kinds of objects to see if they're magnetic! Experiment with iron filings and pins! Figure out what's "attractive" and what's not! Is metal the only material that will stick to the magnets, and do all metals stick? Or why not test the strength of your magnets by sticking a chain of paper clips end to end on the pole of one of your magnets - the longer the chain, the stronger the magnet. You can even explore the attraction and repulsion forces of the poles of your magnets. Opposite poles (the North and South poles of a magnet) attract, and like poles (North and North poles, and South and South poles) repel.
