The three properties of magnets namely, attraction, repulsion and directive are explained vividly with illustrations along with a few basic facts to familiarize grade 2 and grade 3 kids with magnets.
Understanding novel terms is vital in learning new scientific concepts. Comprehend basic and complex terminology related to magnets with concise definitions employing this worksheet.
This interesting magnet worksheet features an exercise to identify the poles of magnets based on the force of attraction or repulsion. Direct grade 3 and grade 4 kids to predict if the magnets would attract or repel each other and tick the appropriate term.
Observe the pairs of magnets in each set and apply the properties - Like poles repel and unlike poles attract. Write if the bar magnets and horseshoe magnets attract or repel each other. Get your hands on two magnets and begin experimenting!
Explore magnets a little more with this worksheet featuring everyday objects. Grade 2 kids learn " What a magnet sticks to?" and "What magnetic objects are?". The kids are expected to identify and connect the magnet to the objects that it attracts.
Brainstorm third-grade children to predict which of the objects in the word box are attracted to magnets, then classify the objects as magnetic or non-magnetic, group them and write in the appropriate columns.
Develop curiosity and encourage children of grade 4 to test every object featured here with a magnet. This labeling worksheet features images of objects, figure out which of the objects is magnetic and write in the space provided.
Snip the pictures of objects, sort them as magnetic or non-magnetic and glue them in the appropriate columns of the T-chart featured in this worksheet, recommended for kids of second and third grades.
Follow-up the vocabulary-cum-definition chart with this magnetism-matching worksheet. Review the knowledge of grade 5 and grade 6 children as they read the terminology associated with magnets and correlate it with the correct description.

Blend learning with fun and watch how kids of grade 2 and 3 are fascinated with magnets and play endlessly with them. Let kids predict, test and record if the objects are magnetic or not using this experiment template.
Get your pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters and half-dollars ready and let fourth and fifth grade children have a blast as they predict which coins are magnetic and which are not. Help them understand the composition of each coin in the process.
All metals are not magnetic! This is exactly what students of grades 5 and 6 will figure out, employing this magnetic experiment worksheet involving metals. First predict, then test and draw conclusions of which metals are magnetic and which are not.
The blank template gives you the freedom to test materials of your choice. Make a list of objects, predict if they are magnetic or not and then use a magnet to conclude if your predictions were right or wrong. Get started on an experimenting spree!
