    This kit includes all the materials kids will need to experiment and learn about the history of magnets, rules of magnetism, types of magnets, how magnets are used and so much more. Kit includes: magnet wand, 3 magnetic balls, horseshoe magnet, bar magnet, 2 ring magnets, a compass, 8 nuts, 5 washers, wire, a metal rod, 3 crepe rubber shapes and 8 double-sided activity cards. The activity cards are illustrated and contain step-by-step instructions for 14 experiments. A nice first magnet set with the "basics" of equipment that go beyond the kit itself, this would make a nice accompaniment to an elementary topical study of magnetism. ~ Alysia

    When my children were younger, they would spend hours exploring with their bar magnet and magnetic circles. This kit would have been a real treat for them! It contains 1 magnet wand, 1 giant horseshoe magnet (with ends marked N and S), 3 ring magnets, 2 plastic-encased button magnets, 1 plastic-encased block magnet, and some magnetic tools -10 Marbles and 20 counting chips. The included activity book contains a brief history of magnetism and various experiments which utilize both the included magnets and common household items. The plastic packaging keeps everything organized. Tactile learning has never been more enjoyable or convenient. ~Deanne

    The instruction manual contained in this kit is an education in itself, but for children there's nothing quite like getting their hands involved in seeing for themselves how things work. As you work your way through the activities in this kit with your children, they'll learn all about magnets, the way they're attracted to iron, poles, compasses, magnetic force fields, and electromagnets. Then at the end, they'll get to have some fun with magnet games—for a total of 33 experiments to do! The kit includes ring, block, and ball magnets; plastic chips; a horseshoe and bar magnet set; compass; iron powder; an iron rod; wire; a polystyrene disk; and a cardboard strip for one of the games. Additional items are needed for some of the experiments, all of which are normal household items. –Chad

    Yikerz is a brilliant and yet very simple game. Four flexible, triangular mats make up the game board, and can actually be assembled into many different configurations – with each one changing the strategy of the game to a degree. The Yikerz magnets are distributed evenly among the players and the goal is to be the first to play all of your magnets on the game board. Sound simple? It's not. These magnets are really strong, and if you get too close you might cause several magnets to snap together, or other magnets to be pushed off the game board. In either of these cases, you have to add any affected pieces to your own stack of un-played magnets. After the first few, magnet placement can become tricky. The instruction sheet also outlines several other variations of the game. Please note that although the game is targeted at children older than 14, this is due to the strength of the magnets. Younger children will enjoy this game as well with supervision.

    Many times magnets and magnet kits are too small and unsafe for little learners. This large horseshoe magnet measures about 8" tall and 6 ½" wide and is intended for smaller hands. Safe for children 3 and up, this horseshoe is plastic with one foot north and one foot south. Your little scientist can have plenty of fun as they explore and test to see what it attracts and where it will stick. ~ Donna

    These are very helpful compendiums of science activities especially conceived for the youngest "scientist". Each has an introduction, materials list, detailed instructions for you (including discussion and conclusion), plus a "Want to do more?" extension activity to use if you want to expand on the activity. The original book is somewhat less useful than the sequel. Although activities are great, the organization makes it a little difficult to find activities to go with a particular study. Basic units of organization include: On Your Own (Science Center Activities), Building with Science (Construction and Measurement), Science for a Crowd, Paints and Prints, Wet and Messy, Science to Grow On (Health and Nutrition), Learning About Nature (Outdoor Science), and Acting Out Science in a Big Way. Use the index to locate activities on particular science topics. The second book has a more useful organization. Basic units include: Colors, Crystals and Creations (Chemistry); How Things Work (Physics); Digging in the Dirt (Geology); How Hot, How Cold, How Windy, How Wet (Weather); Aerial Acrobatics (Flight and Space); Roots and Shoots (Plants); Houses for Slugs, Hideouts for Hamsters (Zoology); and How Much, How Far, How Many (Mathematics). A most welcome feature of both is the inclusion of a suggested minimum age for each activity.

    What is electricity? How do magnets work? Electricity and Magnetism works to unfold the answers to these questions and explain the connection between the two. It was only in the last century that scientists discovered how to generate the electricity that powers our lights, heating and air conditioning systems, and electronic devices. Although current electricity is the most important form of electricity, the book also covers natural or static electricity. Surprisingly, magnetism was discovered over 2000 years ago, but it was not until relatively recently that scientists began to investigate its mysterious properties. Learn all about magnetic forces and fields and how to create your own magnet. ~ Enh
