This is an activity about Earth's magnetosphere. Learners will use a magnet, simulating Earth's protective magnetosphere, and observe what occurs when iron filings, simulating the solar wind, blow past and encounter the magnet's field. This is the sixth activity in the Magnetic Math booklet; this booklet can be found on the Space Math@NASA website.
