Science of magnets

This week’s lessons will focus on science: exploring magnets! Playing with magnets is so fun for young children. To many a magnet’s power is almost like magic! If you do not have a strong magnet a “magnet wand” is a wonderful purchase. You can find these plastic, handled magnets at teacher supply stores or on Amazon. They are super sturdy and will last a very, very long time! Another great magnet exploration item is a set of magnet balls. These are highly popular in most kindergarten classrooms and will keep your five year old busy and learning! If you cannot purchase these items, a couple of strong refrigerator magnets will work for any of the lessons this week!
