Magnets
By Jane Runyon
  

1     Mrs. Kim's class was ready for science class. Mrs. Kim put a desk at the front of the class. There was a cloth over the top of the desk. She asked the class to pay close attention. She told them she was going to take the cloth off the desk. When she did, the class would see objects on the desk top. She wanted the class to look at each object.
 
2     "After you have looked at the objects," she said, "I want someone to describe what each object looks like."
 
3     The children looked at the objects. "Are you ready?" asked Mrs. Kim.
 
4     The children nodded their heads to say yes. Mrs. Kim picked up one of the objects. "Who would like to describe this?" she asked.
 
5     Matthew stood beside his desk. "The object you have is curved like a horseshoe," he said. "It has red paint on one end and yellow paint on the other end. It looks like it is made of a hard material."
 
6     "Thank you, Matthew," said Mrs. Kim, picking up the second object. "Who would like to describe this?"
 
7     Laura stood up. "That object is about as long as my pointer finger," she said. "It is flat. It also looks like it is made from a hard material."
 
8     "Thank you, Laura," Mrs. Kim said. "And this object?"
 
9     Michael stood up. "That object is round. It has a hole in the center. It is flat, also. It looks like it is made of steel."
 
10     "Very good, all of you," said Mrs. Kim. "How are these objects alike?"
