Magnetic Meteorites

This resource, from the Royal Observatory Greenwich, includes a short video about rocks from space, and then a short activity sheet that students can use to discuss the difference between magnetic and non-magnetic meteorites.

It is suitable for key stage 2 students, but it is recommended that they are already familiar with magnetism. There is a companion set of activities to introduce magnetism that could be used to do this.
