Magnetic wands are great for introducing students to the wonders of magnetism. Each brightly-colored wand contains a permanent magnet molded into the end of a durable plastic handle. With these magnetic wands, there is less chance of students pinching their fingers. 7.5 inches long each Style and color may vary based on availability.

This product will support your students' understanding of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)*, as shown in the table below.
Suggested Science Idea(s)
Students can use the Magnetic Wand to plan and conduct an investigation to compare the effects of different strengths or different directions of pushes and pulls on the motion of an object.
Students can use the Magnetic Wand to investigate and analyze data obtained from testing different materials to determine which materials have properties that are best suited for an intended purpose.
Students can use the Magnetic Wand define a simple design problem that can be solved by applying scientific ideas about magnets.
Students can use the Magnetic Wand to ask questions about data to determine the factors that affect the strength of magnetic forces.
Students can use the Magnetic Wand to conduct an investigation and evaluate the experimental design to provide evidence that fields exist between objects exerting forces on each other even though the objects are not in contact.
DCI-MS/PS1.A: Structure and Properties of Matter.
Each pure substance has characteristic physical and chemical properties that can be used to identify it.
DCI-MS/PS3.C: Relationship Between Energy and Forces.
When two objects interact, each one exerts a force on the other that can cause energy to be transferred to or from the object.
Students can use the Magnetic Wand in the design of a device that works with given constraints to convert one form of energy into another form of energy.
The Magnetic Wand can be used to develop and model how two objects interacting through magnetic fields, illustrates the forces between objects and the changes in energy of the objects due to the interaction.
Students can use the Magnetic Wand and other types of magnets to plan and conduct an investigation on the strength of the pushes and pull and exert on objects.
Matter can be described and classified by its observable properties. Students can use the wand to test for materials that are attracted to a magnet.
The Magnetic Wand is a wonderful tool to show the interaction of magnets without contact of those magnets.
Students can use the Magnetic Wand in the design of a device such as a Rube Goldberg machine.
Investigations using the Magnetic Wand will demonstrate the attraction and repulsion between electric charges at the atomic scale explain the structure, properties, and transformations of matter, as well as the contact forces between material objects.
Students can use the Magnetic Wand to develop a model to describe a phenomenon.
