Investigation – Which is the strongest magnet?
Ms O’Dwyer’s class investigated which magnet is the strongest by testing various sizes of magnets and using them to pick up paper clips. We made predictions and carried out an experiment to see whether the larger, medium or smaller sized magnet was the strongest. The children recorded their predictions before we started and the children carried out investigations using three different magnets and paper clips. They counted the amount of paper clips each magnet picked up and they recorded their results on whiteboards.
