The magnetized needle pointed north

In physical science class, students learned that a needle can be magnetized and then used to make a compass.  After rubbing a needle and a magnet together, Jonny floated the needle in a bowl of water to see if it would face north and south. If you look closely at the picture you can see that north and south on the compass perfectly align with the magnetized needle. Great work, Jonny!
