Magnets are fascinating for kids and it’s fun to incorporate them into Homeschool Science!
I found a magnet book at a garage sale one time and my kids loved looking at it and reading about how magnets work. I thought it would be fun to put together a unit study on magnets so I began my search online. Here are some of the fun things I found!
