Magnetic?

Prepare a bulletin board by making a simple T-chart, labelling one side Magnetic and the other Not Magnetic. Prepare several pictures of different objects having magnetic properties by cutting them out, mounting them on thicker paper, and laminating them. Punch holes in the top of these pictures. Do this same thing for pictures of non-magnetic objects. Have tacks available at the bulletin board area. Your students will place the pictures in the appropriate columns using the tacks. You may want to do this as a follow-up activity to a study of magnets. This can also be an introductory activity where students can get hands-on experience using magnets and they can use the bulletin board to record their data.
