11 Magnetic Poles All magnets have two ends. These ends are called the magnetic poles. There is a North Pole (N) and a South Pole (S). Use buttons below to continue

12 Question #3 Magnetic have two magnetic poles, North Pole and South Pole. TrueFalse

13 Great Job !!!! All magnets have two magnetic poles, a North Pole (N) and a South Pole (S). Use buttons below to continue

14 Sorry !!!! All magnets have two magnetic poles, a North Pole (N) and a South Pole (S). Use buttons below to continue

15 2 types of forces Repel Poles which are the same, or like poles, repel each other. That means they push each other away. Attract Poles which are different attract each other, or pull together.

16 Forces Attraction and repulsion are forces. The force of the magnet is strongest at the poles.

17 Question #4 Attraction and repulsion are forces. TrueFalse
