They will identify that magnets attract some materials and not others and that these are known as magnetic materials. They will learn that some metals, but not all, are magnetic and that all non-metals are non-magnetic. They will learn that magnets have two poles and that two magnets will attract or repel each other, depending on which poles are facing.
