4- Making connections - this invites the students to make connections between what the objects are made of and their magnetic qualities- editable document.
5- Whole Group sort- pictures of classroom materials that can be sorted based on their magnetic qualities. The pictures can be also used for predictions and results- before and after the experiments…
