Science it Out!

How many paper clips can you pick up using a nail, a battery, some wires, and perseverance?

It was a frustrating but rewarding challenge.

How The World Works: Tuning In

We moved around various stations today. It was fascinating! We made some interesting observations and noted what we saw. We also noted what we were thinking and any questions we had. Near the end of the day we went back to our notes and "pulled out" two " Big Questions" that had stuck with us. These are questions we saved for latter in a Google Doc. We hope to get some answers as we go deeper into this unit on Magnetism and Electricity.
