Forces and Magnets

Objectives covered in this unit:


  • I can compare how things move on different surfaces.
  • I can see that some forces need contact between two objects but magnetic forces can act at a distance.
  • I can observe how magnets attract or repel each other and attract some materials and not others.
  • I can compare and group some materials on the basis of whether or not they are attracted to a magnet, and identify some magnetic materials.
  • I can describe magnets as having two poles.
  • I can predict whether two magnets will attract or repel each other, depending on which poles are facing.
