Earths Magnetic Fields Quiz For 6th Grade - Quiz

The earth's magnetic field refers to the force that extends from the internal part of the earth into the outer space. The strength of the geomagnetic field is as a result of the intense electric current from the earth's core. Are you in the know? Take this quiz if you do.
