ALL ABOARD: WE’RE GATHERING STEAM
It’s time to fish with this week’s focus on TECHNOLOGY while creating a fishing rod.
- Construction paper
- Paper clips
- Tie a piece of string (about 3 ft long) around the end of your dowel.
- At the other end of the string, tie a magnet in place. This is your fishing rod!
- Cut out some fish out of construction paper and add a paper clip onto the mouth of your fish.
- It’s time to fish!
Children will learn about magnets and what types of materials they attract. Magnetic fields are invisible clouds of energy around particles that either pull or push away other magnetic objects. Let’s hope your children PULL in some fish!
