Year 3 – Iron Man’s Scrapyard
This afternoon the classroom was transformed into the Iron man’s scrapyard! Wearing high visibility jackets, the children led their own investigation to find out which materials were magnetic. By grouping together non-magnetic metals and magnetic metals, children were able to dispel the misconception that all metals are magnetic. Children then reported on their findings through oral and written explanations. We discovered that iron is magnetic, so any metal containing iron will be attracted to a magnet.
