A Magnetism Crossword for Year 4

Magnetism is a force that makes certain materials attract or repel each other. It’s like magic, but it’s actually the result of tiny particles inside the material called electrons. Some materials, like iron, can be naturally magnetised, meaning they have a special power to attract certain things. It’s kind of like how a superhero has a special power. You can find magnets in refrigerator doors, toys, and even the Earth’s magnetic field!
