Magnetism is the attraction or repulsion of the poles of magnets. There are two poles of a magnet, the north pole and the south pole. They react according to the magnetic fields of the earth, this is how a compass works. A freely moving magnet will always have the same end pointing North and have one end indicating the North direction. Magnets will attract the opposite pole of another magnet while repulsing a like pole.
