Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Materials
shaving razor handle
3 small neodymium magnets ( or 1 bigger one)
Xacto knife (I used my homemade toothbrush Xacto Knife)
Step 2: Fitting the Cork
Using an xacto knife, cut off a chunk of the cork, and then trim it to fit in the empty space on the razor handle,
Step 3: Fitting the Magnets
again using an xacto knife cut out a niche for the magnets to sit in so they are snug in the cork.
Step 4: Glueing It All Together
check to make sure everything fits properly. once you are satisfied use super glue to secure everything in place. first the cork into the handle. then the magnets into the cork. at first i tried to glue all 3 magnets in at once but they just bunched together so i glued each one seperately. wait for all the glue to dry to try it out.
Step 5: FINISHED!
Now that you are done, you have yourself a nifty doing all sorts of magnetic things.
