A “Magnetizing” Science Lesson

Students enrolled in Lisa Lang’s third-grade class at Babylon Memorial Grade School recently applied their scientific knowledge to learn about the many properties of magnetism. Using a limited number of materials, the students’ goal was to use their critical thinking skills to successfully conduct magnetism using one rubberized magnet, one nail and a paperclip. After striking the nail with the rubberized magnet dozens of times in the same direction to align the domains, the students reached their goal of creating a temporary magnet when the tip of the nail was able to successfully pick up a paper clip or two.
