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.

We loved trying to pick up metal things without touching them, watching them jump onto the magnet.
