Process (How to do the activity)

Cut the wire (if needed) and loose at the other end too. Now remove about an inch of the coating from both ends of the wire and attach the one wire to one end of a battery and the other wire to the other end of the battery. See picture below. Electromagnet.gif
Now you have an ELECTROMAGNET! Put the point of the nail near the pins or iron feeling and it should pick them up.
