Montessori Science Lesson on Magnetic Forces

Posted on December 04 2015

Montessori children have been learning about magnetic forces in their science lessons. They have been told a story about a famous pirate called Bluebeard who tried to hide his treasure (iron filings) in the sand and how some other pirates managed to find it very easily when they had a magnet to look for the treasure. The children had the opportunity to witness the strength of the magnetic force between the magnet and the iron filings and were totally amazed by the experience. This was a great way to engage the children in science as their attention was completely captured by the story of the Bluebeard.  Later the children had the opportunity to sort the different objects in their classrooms into magnetic and non-magnetic groups of objects and witnessed the strength of the magnetic force between the magnet and the string of paper clips and could not wait for their turn to have a go.
