Magnet Exploration and Discovery!

Over the last week, we have really explored magnets and what they are capable of. The picture shows some of the discoveries that the students made. In Social, we have been talking about Natural Resources and how they affect our lives. We then connected the idea that if we continue to use natural resources at the ever increasing rate and could potentially run out of them, how could we get from place to place? Example, we need gas and oil for our cars, buses, boats, and planes to travel, so then how could we use magnets in their place? The students were asked to discuss with their families, over the weekend, ideas on how they could use magnets to get from place to place. We will begin designing magnet vehicles (cars, boats, planes, etc.) this week, so start brainstorming together to come up with some ideas!
