All About Magnets

  C initiated our study of magnets this week. He has tested many things to see if they are magnetic. We have a collection of several types of magnets and he and J tested every one.

Holding hematite magnet under the table to test  magnetic pull.

We have enjoyed reading The Magic School Bus: Amazing Magnetism and More Power to You: The Science of Batteries and Magnets. We plan to do more experiments with our magnets the rest of this week. We need to get iron fillings (mentioned in the Magic School Bus book) and neodymium magnets to further our studies.
