Experimenting with magnets in 1st Class


First Class spent Friday afternoon testing out whether magnets can work on metal, plastic or wood.

The boys also thought up other questions to investigate like will a magnet work through something else? (Yes) Does a magnet pull another magnet? (Opposite poles do, alike poles push away.) Will both ends of a magnet pull a piece of metal (yes). Can we find a metal that magnets don’t work on? (Yes – the aluminium water bottle was one example.)
