Participants study magnetic fields at four separate stations: examining magnetic fields generated by everyday items,
mapping out a magnetic field using a compass, creating models of Earth's and Jupiter's magnetic fields, and observing
aurora produced by magnetic fields on both planets.
|Hints for uses in your library||Have the children use caution when experimenting with magnets! They should not be brought near computers, computer monitors, audio tapes, or other magnetic devices.|
