Forces and Magnets - Science Companion Project
This project teaches children about contact and non-contact forces, including friction and magnetism. They investigate frictional and magnetic forces, and identify parts of a magnet and magnetic materials.
Ask your child- Is kicking a football a push or a pull force?
Ask your child- What are the two poles called on magnets?
Ask your child- When would two magnets attract to each other?
Ask your child- If the surface is smooth will there be more or less frictional force?
