Today some of the children spent their time investigating magnets. They had fun exploring which items were magnetic. They discussed the items with each other and tried to guess which ones would “stick” before testing their theory out.
After a while, they noticed that when two magnets were put together they either “stick together” or were “pushing away”. We discussed poles and how magnets attract or repel each other. They tried different shapes of magnets to see if the same thing happened.
