Educator Resources for Magnet Hunt

In Magnet Hunt, students use their knowledge of magnetism and a “Magnet Detector Kit” to predict the location of magnets buried in the ground. Players use compasses, iron filings and magnetic film to outline magnetic fields, and can create clues to indicate the placement of the buried magnet. This game emphasizes playful exploration of magnetism and electromagnetic conduction.
