If you are working with the science standard about children learning to develop an understanding for the processes of scientific investigation and design, this book has photos and information about how scientists work and think. This would help provide a role model for children to apprentice themselves to when working with magnets or other science experiments.

This book can help expose young children to a table of contents, glossary, index, and more resources such as books and web sites.  Teachers and parents can point out nonfiction text features without expecting children in K-1 to fully comprehend.  It covers magnets in nature, finds by archaeologists, step by step experiments, and vocabulary terms.  The book has captivating photographs children will find engaging.

The freebie for this book does not require that exact title. Any magnet related nonfiction book that might be in your school or neighborhood library would be fine. This printable is 47 pages as the work pages are varied to allow for differentiation options.  It includes posters, work pages, answer keys, student awards, and more.  I hope you find it helpful!

We live in Grand Marais, MN, which is near Lake Superior.  The children there live close to magnetic rock trail and a 60 foot high magnetic rock.  They have heard stories of shipwrecks caused by iron deposits in the region, making the ships’ compasses unreliable.  We used to visit my grandmother who lived on the Iron Range, an area with huge iron mines, in northern Minnesota. You may live near some other interesting magnetic nature feature, which can also be discussed or visited when studying magnets.

Most of the magnets pictures (as on the vocabulary pocket chart cards and other pages) are from Teacher’s Clip Art.  I have found this resource to be invaluable!  The most difficult part of making some lessons is being able to find appropriate clip art.  I also used several other resources in making this lesson as cited on page two.

    Thanks so much…my family has a cabin up the Gunflint Trail outside of Grand Marais, MN and we spend as much time as we can up there. We have been to Magnetic Trail so many time…mostly to pick blueberries!

      Kari, I’m glad to hear from you! We have a house in the woods there. How fun you wrote!

    This looks great! Wonderful activities and cute graphics. I love that it can be used with a variety of ages of kids. We spend a lot of summer days with Grandpa (who is a retired science teacher and loves doing activities with the kids). The grandkids range in ages from 3-9 so this will be fun for all of them!
