This lesson was created to help students review magnets. The vocabulary and concepts can be hard for them, so I wanted to reinforce what we had already learned in a hands-on and fun way. I also wanted to push them to show their knowledge and to ask and answer meaningful questions, as well as to extend their existing knowledge.
