Science and Magnets

Hi Teacher Friends!  This week in science we are learning about and exploring with magnets.  Today we completed a fun experiment.  I did this last year with my class and the kids loved it.  It was a big hit with this year's kiddos too.  You will need a clear plastic cup, a screw or nail, a magnet wand and water.  This experiment helps the kids see that the magnet will pull an object through liquids.  The kids had so much fun this afternoon with this.  We also watched a fun video clip on Brain Pop Jr. about magnets.  The characters (Moby and Annie) on Brain Pop Jr. did this experiment and the kids were so excited to get to do this too. 

Hope you are having a great week at school!  :)
