Preparing for back to school next week!
We are continuing our Magnetic March.
Week One went like this!
Topped off with this fun activity!
Here is some of what we will be doing when we return:
I took pictures of the numbers - prepared the matching sheet and laminated it.
Then taped the matching sheet to a tin cookie sheet.
We will add one of our new activities from Toys, Tools & Treasures
Then we will be doing this 'trick'!
Here's how we did it:
Poke a hole in the bottom of the plastic bottle.
I heated a metal paper clip with a lighter and pushed it through.
Then insert a long thin string - tie on a paper clip once it's through - and make it the length of the bottle.
Tie a knot in the end of the string so it does not go back through the bottle.
Add a dab of hot glue to secure it further.
Now hot glue a magnet into the lid.
Glue it onto the bottle.
Then you show everyone the bottle - with the paper clip laying down inside.
Then turn it gently upside down and then turn it upright - showing everyone the floating paper clip.
Our next magnetic activity
You will need a magnet and some pennies.
I discovered not all pennies are magnetic.
Check them first to ensure they will indeed be attracted by the magnet.
Now see how many pennies you can attach end to end.
This should be a fun magnetic week!
