All about Magnets. Physical Science for Children[TM]. Schlessinger Science Library. [Videotape].
Why does a magnet stick to the fridge but not to the wooden cabinets? This question will be answered as viewers discover what makes something "magnetic." Young students learn about positive and negative forces, the North and South Poles, and the basic concepts of why opposites attract. Children find out more about what magnets are used for and in which simple machines they are found. With a hands-on experiment and real world examples, these concepts are more easily understood. One of the 11 volumes in the Physical Science for Children series in the Schlessinger Science Library. Part of the Schlessinger Science Library for Children Collection. This 23-minute videotape correlates to the National Science Education Standards for Physical Science--properties of objects and materials, position and motion of objects, and light, heat, electricity and magnetism. The program includes a teacher's guide. (Author/MM)
