Your child's experience with gravity is challenged in this activity, which uses magnets to create shapes and sculptures.
- 15 to 30 minutes
- Bar magnet
- Small paper clips
- This activity challenges experience with gravity. Magnetize the clips by rubbing them on the bar in one direction.
- Once they have acquired a magnetic field, they can be stood end to end vertically, connected horizontally, or moved to form amazing shapes.
- See how tall you can make a sculpture.
- Bring the clips out as far as you can horizontally without tipping them over.
