Oh no! The zookeeper has dropped his keys in the crocodile’s enclosure. He needs his keys to be able to feed the rest of the animals at the zoo.

Not to worry, he remembers his keyring is a magnet, but first he needs to be able to reach the keys.


This resource is a fun investigation into items that are magnetic and not magnetic.


Students will test a variety of items before choosing one that is magnetic and attaching it to a string to collect the keys from the cranky crocodiles.


It features a fun provocation PowerPoint and principles including a crocodile enclosure and keys.
