Wow, this is awesome! Whenever I put a paper clip next to the magnet it immediately attracts!
PAPER CLIPS 1000 COUNT
Welcome, Class. Today we're learning about magnetism and how to use a compass. Sit back for further instructions
Wow! As I move the compass it magnetically attracts to the North and South Poles.
Magnetism is the force that attracts or repels objects. It occurs when tiny particles called electrons to behave in a certain way. Magnetism can be seen in daily life as there are lots of magnetic materials on Earth. For example, iron, nickel, and other metals are all magnetic. Additionally, items we use daily like paperclips are magnetic. In this scene, Ronald is testing out a magnet he just bought. When he brings a paperclip near the magnet it attracts resulting in them sticking together.
Compasses magnetically attract the North and South Poles to give an accurate representation of your exact bearing. For example, the compass may read, 300 degrees Northwest. To use a compass level it near your belly button. Then just point in the direction you wish to go and turn your compass till "Red Fred is in the Shed." Meaning turn your compass till the red arrow is in the red box. Once this is done, at the top below the GO arrow will be your bearings.
