Investigating Magnets


On Friday, we decided to investigate magnets in Science. We had previously investigated magnetic and non-magnetic materials, and discovered that not all metals are magnetic. We then decided that we wanted to find the answers to some other questions we had.


We each planned and carried out our own investigations based on what we wanted to find out. Some of us wanted to see if materials were still magnetic in water or soil. Some wanted to find out if materials were still magnetic at certain distances or if they were placed between non-magnetic objects. Others wanted to find out a little more about magnetic and non-magnetic metals.


We had to decide how we were going to carry out our investigation, how we were going to make them fair tests, and how we were going to record our results. We then had to use our findings to make conclusions.

We really enjoyed having the opportunity to find the answers to our own questions!
