What Magnets Work Through

Magnets can work through some items. We did an experiment. We got a book and put a magnet on one side of the book and a paperclip on the other side. Then we let go of the paperclip to see if the paperclip will stay. That's an experiment you can try. These are some items that the magnet will attract a paperclip through:


  • plastic box
  • rulers
  • bottom of a chair
  • scissor blades
  • pencil cases and other stuff


      Any magnet will work for this experiment.
