Marvellous Magnets in Room 28 (3rd class)

on February 9, 2017

We started experimenting with everyday objects from the classroom

We made our predictions, tested the objects with various magnets and recorded our results

We discovered that magnets are attracted to some metals but not all


We challenged ourselves to remove a paper clip from a jar of water without touching it

We also tried to move a toy car using a magnet. We discovered that ‘like’ poles repel each other and ‘opposite’ poles attract each other. We used this to move our cars


We had lots of fun learning all about magnets. We feel like ‘mini scientists’ 🙂
