Step 1:

these are the things that you may need:

firstly take a needle and rub one of its end to one pole of the magnet 100times.it may take one minute.then rub the other end of the needle with another pole of magnet.








 

Step 3:

now take the plastic and make a circle.now stick the needle in middle of it.

Step 4:

now drop it on the water.it will start to move and at a time it will stop moving.now if you move it the other side, it would get back to that early spot.now mark its two ends north and south by matching the direction with another compass.
