A Magnet’s Powers Chapter 21
Magnetic Materials Materials that are attracted to a magnet are magnetic.
Examples of magnetic materials are metals such as iron, steel and nickel. iron nails steel spoon and knife
Non-magnetic Materials Materials that are not attracted to a magnet are non-magnetic.
Examples of non-magnetic materials are… … metals such as gold, aluminium, silver and copper. gold brooch copper container ...
… all non-metals such as plastic, wood, paper, glass and clay.
Every magnet has two poles, regardless of the shape. Where do you think are the poles of these magnets?
Strong Ends of a Magnet  A magnet’s attraction is strongest at its poles.
