We have spent the last few weeks reviewing Physical Science for our upcoming state science test. It is based on Grade 3-5 curriculum and the students need to refresh their skills.
Magnets is the one time I let my students "play" with the materials. They are just plain fun. Who can resist sticking them on things, and trying to collect as many objects as possible?
The magnet standards include sorting objects, magnet poles attract and repel, magnetic fields and types of magnets (permanent, temporary and electromagnets). I used stations to review most of the concepts with the kids. I will be creating TPT energy units over the summer.
