"Magnetic Creatures" Trailer

Students discover all the weird things that magnets can do. Students make their own weird creature that moves magnetically through the habitat they create. This relates to magnetic fields, electrons, magnetic materials, attraction and repulsion, and north versus south poles. This video also includes one of Mr. Mac’s crazy stories, “The Fire-Breathing Bunny Rabbit,” to help students remember the lesson. Difficulty: Hard (This lesson is rated "Hard" because the opening demo requires materials that might be hard to find. But you can skip that demo to make this an "Easy" lesson.)
