Magnetism - Magnet Fishing Game
 
Fishing for Treasures
Materials you will need:


• String
• Magnets
• Paper-Clips
• Nice Sized Shoe Box
• Several Sticks/Pencils
• Some Gold or Yellow Pieces of Paper

This is a challenging game.

 
Instructions:

At the bottom of a canyon, there is a big pile of gold bars that has been abandoned by some robbers.  

How many do you think you can rescue?  

How to play you will need to cut out 12 small rectangles of gold-coloured card, attach a paper-clip to each of the gold bars, put them in an empty tissue box or shoe box.  

Each player will need a pencil or a stick with a piece of string tied around the pencil or stick.  

Tie the other end of the string around a magnet.  

The one who picks up the most gold bars with their fishing magnet is the winner!

( Gold is NOT magnetic but it makes the game more fun ! ! )

Magnets have a special power which enables them to attract things made from iron or steel.  

One end of a magnet is called the north pole and the other end is called the south pole.

If you bring two north poles together they repel each other, or push each other away, but if you put a south pole next to a north pole, they jump together because opposite poles attract.
