May the FORCE be with you!

Posted by Heather Smith in Otters |

In Otter class over the last few weeks, we have been really busy learning how magnets work.

We now know that:

  • Magnets have two poles- North and South.
  • They work the same underwater as they do in air.
  • You cannot see a magnet working- it has an invisible force
  • Magnets attract and repel each other
  • Not all materials are magnetic- not even all coins are magnetic, even though they’re metal.
  • Magnets can work through materials, such as wood, plastic and paper –this means they don’t need to make contact with the magnetic material.
