This appealingly packaged kit--in the same format as the enormously popular and bestselling String Games and Tangram Puzzles--is absolutely guaranteed to attract kids’ attention. That’s because they’ll find not only the most entertaining activities inside, but an assortment of variously shaped magnets. And these tricks, experiments, and crafts aren’t just fun--they teach good science. Children will discover that, like the Earth itself, magnets have poles, and see what role magnets have played in space exploration, tape recordings, computer disks, medicine, and many of the most important areas in life.
