The Concepts: In this activity, students will learn about magnetism and then will examine and test a variety of items to see if they are magnetic. Next, they will sort the items into categories by whether or not they are magnetic. Finally, they will count and graph the number of items that were attracted to a magnet and the number of items not attracted to a magnet. Other concepts discussed are letter sounds and the words yes and no.
