Y3 Magnet Olympics

Pupils select three different magnets and make predictions relating to which one they think is the strongest. Pupils then complete a series of magnetic tasks/competitions to test their predictions.

Learning Objectives:

  • POS - notice that some forces need contact between two objects, but magnetic forces can act at a distance
  • NaG - pupils should explore the strengths of different magnets and find a fair way to compare them
  • WS - pupils should set up simple practical enquiries, comparative and fair tests; gather, record, classify and present data in a variety of ways to help in answering questions
