  • Sprinkle iron filings on a piece of paper over two magnets, when magnets are facing each other with attractive poles and with repulsive poles. This allows you to see different iron filing patterns (magnetic field patterns) for the different magnet orientations.
  • If you need more iron filings, there are some on Shelf 56
