Fun with magnets.

Today we had a message from Googly, the Alien in our classroom. He is missing his planet Chromium and all the lovely metal things there. We used magnets to find him some metal, sorting objects into two groups. Whilst doing so we made predictions about which things we thought would be metal and were surprised to find that some things that we thought would be made of metal, actually weren’t. We loved trying to pick up metal things without touching them, watching them jump onto the magnet.
