Magnets!

The children were able to learn about magnets last week.  We had several activities on the shelves for children to explore.

In this activity, we have a collection of objects.  Some are magnetic and some are not.

The children experiment with the magnet and begin to realize characteristics of objects that may stick to the magnetic.

We try to change the objects each day so the children have more to explore.

They quickly learn how to categorize objects, even if they are not reading.

This is another activity that children can explore.  We talk about how repelling and attracting.

Some of the Kindergarten children  made a book about things in the classroom that are magnetic.  This helps them develop their writing skills while experimenting.
