Which is the Strongest Magnet? Hands On Investigation
Mr. Bulfin’s 3rd and 4th Class investigated which magnet was the strongest magnet. They explored fridge magnets, bar magnets, wand magnets and a horse shoe magnet. They wrote up their investigations using the whole school science investigation template. They then shared their learning with Senior Infants and 1st Class.
Children used the Numbers app to record their results and create data in the form of bar charts. They recorded their investigations on the Keynote app. Have a listen below.
Magnetic or Non-magnetic? Hands On Investigation
