Playing with Magnets


Today we played with magnets. We started by putting a paperclip in a glass of water.  We had to get the paperclip out without getting the magnet wet.  We then had some wonderings; like what happens if it is a plastic container or we have leaves, sand or bark in the glass instead of water.  

We learnt that we could only save our 'treasure' in water and oil and it did not matter if it was a plastic or glass container. So it only worked when it was a LIQUID in the glass and not a DENSE substance.

We then played with magnets to learn what was around the classroom that was magnetic.
