1. Draw a maze on a piece
of cardboard. Can you guide
a paper-clip through the maze?
Place the paperclip on the top
of your cardboard with the maze
facing up. Place the magnet under
your cardboard where the paperclip
is resting on top. Now move your
magnet around and see what happens.
2. Can you rescue a paper-clip
from a glass of water without getting
Fill you glass with water and
drop the paper-clip inside the
glass. Take the magnet and place
it on the outside of the glass
close to the magnet and see if
you can pull the paper-clip to
the side of the glass and up to
the top (without getting wet).
3. Will the paper-clip climb
the ruler? (You can use a
plastic or a wooden ruler).
Hold your ruler so that one end
is resting on a flat surface and
hold the other end up at a angle.
Place the magnet on the under
side of the ruler (the end that
it resting on the flat surface)
and then place the paperclip on
the top of the ruler (again, the
end of the ruler that is resting
on the flat surface).
Move the magnet to go up to the
top end of the ruler.
