'M' is for Magnet

Makisha plays with magnets
At every chance she gets.
She uses them to make things,
For people and their pets.

One day while watching skaters
Slide by along the pond,
She thought of an invention—
A magnet wonder wand!

With paper clips and paper
Of course a magnet too
Try what young Makisha did—
It's so much fun to do!

How does Makisha's magnet make her
skaters move?

Metal paper clips contain iron, a metal that magnets attract. Magnets can work through many materials, including paper. The wonder wand magnet attracts the paper clips through the paper, allowing the skaters to skate.
