Use this coloring page as part of a ‘magnet hunt.’

Go around the house and find things that are magnetic. Circle the items on the coloring sheet that are attracted to the magnet and draw in any other items you found that are also magnetic.

A magnet is a solid object, usually a rock or piece of metal, that has the ability to attract certain materials. To help discover what is and isn’t attracted to a magnet (in other words, what is magnetic), go on a magnet hunt. Look around the room and make a list of objects you think will be attracted to a magnet as well as a list of objects that will not be attracted. Test each of the objects on your list to see if they stick. (Don’t use magnets on computers, cassette tapes, discs, and other electronic devices – it could damage the magnets inside of them!)
