Magnet Man: Cool Experiments with Magnets:

Covers the Same Topic As PhET Simulation: Magnet and Compass

A related interactive simulation that explores the relationship between a bar magnet and a compass. Users can add a field meter or superimpose the planet Earth on the bar magnet to see the orientation of the magnetic poles.
