MAGNETS What is a Magnet? Magnets attract certain kinds of metal such as iron. Iron is a kind of metal. A magnet has two poles, a north and south pole. Its north pole is on one end and its south pole is on the other end. What do magnets do? Magnets can attract an object. Attract means to pull towards. If something is magnetic, that means it can be attracted by a magnet. The north pole on a magnet attracts the south pole of another magnet. A magnet attracts with more force when the object is close. So if you put the paper clip on your desk right near the magnet, the magnet will pull the paper clip toward itself. A magnet attracts with less force if object is far away. If you put the paper clip on another desk, the magnet on your desk will not be able to attract it. A paper clip will be attracted to a magnet. If you put a magnet near a paper clip, the paper clip would stick to the magnet. © Copyright NewPath Learning. All Rights Reserved.
