Happy New Year!
I hope everyone has had a chance to rest over the holiday break. Our family had a nice trip to Florida last week to see my parents and a couple of siblings. We had easy travels and a good visit, so all in all it was a nice change of pace for a week.
I wanted to share a song about Magnets. I wrote this song to assist a teacher in exposing her students to magnets, what they are, what they do, and where you can usually find them. It is very wordy (in my opinion), but I opted to repeat each new verse so that the students would have a longer period of time to look at the visual aid (I made a power point with pictures of each magnet mentioned)for each verse.
My goal was to find several items in which magnets are found that students would most likely relate to and recognize. I was surprised by some of the items that have magnets myself!
If you have any questions and/or feedback, feel free to email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Have a great day!
Magnets all around,
We use them for many things.
They come in lots of sizes,
and many different shapes.
Refrigerator doors, speakers, CD players too.
Credit cards, can openers, and lots of toys too.
Magnets have a force that cannot be seen.
It's called Magnetic Force and it can be strong or weak.
Magnets have two poles, one is the north and one is the south.
Opposite poles will attract, and stick together.
Like poles will push away, and repel each other.
