Year 2 Finding Their Way – Wet Magnet Compass Experiment
February 20, 2018
At the end of our current Science unit of Magnets the children in Year 2 made a compass as part of an experiment. Using water, a bowl, a lid, a magnet and a nail children had to magnetise the nail then float it on a lid to see in it would point north. After this the children verified their results by checking with a compass app on their iPads.
It is great for the teachers to see their students use both traditional science and technology together in order to discover knowledge for themselves.
