Y3 Magnetic Materials Investigation Table

Pupils are given a range of objects and predict whether or not they will be attracted to a magnet. Pupils test their predictions and record their results into a results table.

Learning Objectives:

  • POS - compare and group together a variety of everyday materials on the basis of whether they are attracted to a magnet, and identify some magnetic materials
  • NaG - pupils should sort materials into those that are magnetic and those that are not
  • WS - pupils should set up simple practical enquiries, comparative and fair tests; use straightforward scientific evidence to answer questions or to support their findings; gather, record, classify and present data in a variety of ways to help in answering questions
