Exploring Magnets in First Grade!

Last week for science, 1st Grade explored magnets! After we reviewed with the Magnets BrainPOP on Wednesday we did our Magnets quiz.

Thursday and Friday the kids worked in their learning groups exploring magnets! There were 6 different learning stations they visited. The kids played a magnet sorting and testing game on the SMART board, took turns reading a book about magnets as a group, tried to make ring magnets and a paperclip float, looked at how magnets move in different liquids, tested then recorded magnetic and non-magnetic items, and played with magnetic wants and different items to see how they interacted with the magnets.
