Learning Objectives

Observe how magnets attract or repel each other and attract some materials and not others. Setting up simple practical enquiries, comparative and fair tests.

Learning Outcomes

I can perform a fair test to see which magnet is the strongest. I can identify variables that will change and stay the same in my test.
