I created this simple worksheet for some science fun with my Three.
Here are the objects we collected to see if they were magnetic:
- plastic ruler
- clothespin (with metal clip)
- paper clip
When we began the activity, I asked my Four if he wanted to do it with us. He refused – repeatedly.
After he saw what we were doing, though, he requested a worksheet so he could do it when we were done!
- The pencil was magnetic! The magnet picked up the metal ring near the eraser.
- If we held the magnet close to a small magnetic object, it hopped up to the magnet. This happened with both the nail and the paper clip.
- My Three was surprised when the spoon, key, and coin were not magnetic.
After we filled out the recording sheet, my Three had a lot of fun playing with the magnetic marbles and counters that are part of our magnet kit. I showed him how we could use the magnetic wand to move the magnetic marbles around without even touching them!
I’d have loved to get more pictures for you, but I had a certain little one (15 months) on my lap, and she was intent on grabbing my camera. So forgive me for the fuzzy pictures and go ahead and download your freebie.
