Make your own mini-mine and dump truck with this creative activity.

Huge open-cut mines are a common sight in the Mid West, as are their round-the-clock fleets of gigantic dump trucks. Each truck can haul loads of up to 400 tonnes! 

What better way to experience the mineral property of magnetism than with a mining truck that moves through a maze using the magic of magnets?
