These next three are better for fourth-to-sixth-graders. They are listed in order from easiest to hardest:

The Science Book of Magnets, by Neil Ardley (Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, 1991)

Magnets, by Steve Parker (Gareth Stevens, 1998)

Experimenting with Magnets, by Alan Ward (Chelsea House, 1991).

For junior-high kids, try:

Science Projects about Electricity and Magnets, by Robert Gardner (Enslow, 1994). The projects described here are more challenging.

Here's a Web site for kids that tells about magnets and lists some experiments (making a compass, an electromagnet).
