To conclude our short magnetism topic we shared all our new learning:


“The stronger & bigger a magnet, the more it can attract.”

“Magnets can move iron.”

“Huge magnets on cranes are used in junk yards.”

“Magnets stick to some metals like iron and steel.”

“Magnets give off a force.”

“The same poles can’t attract… they repel.”

“South pole can only attract the north.”


We then applied this new knowledge and worked collaboratively to create our own magnetism board games for others to play.

Making our own, fun board games was a great way to conclude our magnetism topic and we are now looking forward to learning all about castles in our next topic.
