Second Grade Nest: Learning About Magnets

Learning About Magnets

My kids are totally digging science lately. We spent a few weeks on Magnets and now we are moving on to weather. 

I am doing a product review on an amazing magnet set that I received from Dowling Magnets. 
This set is perfect for the little ones just starting to experiment with magnets outside of their refrigerator. 

Check it out here

Here is what comes inside! 

When we first got our magnets out, we walked around the room and tried to find things that were magnetic. 

And we used the big magnet to find magnet and nonmagnetic things, we started playing around with the other magnets. 
The kids (and I) had WAY too much fun exploring. 



We grabbed this freebie off Pinterest and cut and paste what we found was and was not magnetic in our classroom!

  1. Seems like a pretty good kit! We always love playing, I mean, experimenting with magnets too. This year I had a kid that knew there was a force pulling our magnetic pieces to the magnet. HELLO future scientist! Glad to say I was his Kindergarten teacher!
