This week the Preps explored magnets. They predicted what materials would be attracted to magnets, watched a demonstration of floating magnets and challenged each other to pick up a string of paper clips. Lots of paper racing cars sped around race tracks using a paper clip and magnetic force through the table.
At the end of the session students reflected on their learning. They said: “magnets can push and pull each other”, “magnets pick up metal (but not all)” and “magnets can work through tables”. Lots of fantastic learning Preps!
