Scientist of the Week- Magnet Power!

This week's scientist of the week taught us all about magnets. FIrst, she tested various items to see if they stuck to the magnet wand. Then, she filled a bowl with water and put a circle with a magnet on it into the bowl. We watched as it found north. Wow, it was a compass! She also explained how the earth was a giant natural magnet. The children had lots of questions and we learned a lot about magnets.
