Magnets and Electromagnets

We learned all about magnets today.
We discovered what magnets are attracted to and what magnets are not attracted to, we found several objects that magnets will work through, and some that magnets can't work through, we made our own magnets and an electromagnet, we talked about magnets which can attract or repel other magnets and we played with dowel magnets, iron filings and lots of different sorts of magnets.
We learned most things about the magnets by discovering for ourselves!
