Magnet Fun and a winner!

Ugh. My sickness is coming back. I feel worse today than I did yesterday. 

BUT, today was Field Day and it was BEAUTIFUL! It was sunny, breezy, and about 70 degrees. FABULOUS day for being outside for almost 2 hours watching my kiddos having fun!
(did you see my fancy words, Rachelle? ha!)

Anyway, because I'm feelin' a less than stellar today, this post is short and sweet.

We did some magnet activities this week...

They had to predict if a magnet could pull up the paperclip from the OUTSIDE of the different cups. I used a  glass mason jar, a styrofoam cup, and a plastic cup. I put some water in the cups. And I gave each group the SAME kind of magnet - so there was only ONE variable - the type of cup.

They noticed that they couldn't lift the paperclip over the lip on the mason jar, but one of my smarties went and got a bigger magnet off my board, and then discovered it worked - Oh, how I love them sometimes!

If you want the activity - click the pick. It's a pretty fast and fun activity for them!

AND, last night I did a post of my organization - and my updated spring packs...

It was such a long post that if you were able to get to the end of it, then I was doing a giveaway - the winner could choose one of the packs from that post - 

I did the Random Number site and it chose Melissa from Jungle Learners!!
The email should be coming to you soon!

Fun experiments like these are one of the things I miss from teaching science. Thanks for sharing!

Oh my goodness, I'm thrilled to have your spring time math! Thank you so much, you just made my day! (Also, thank you for the magnet freebie, that's what we're learning about right now and my kids will love it!)

Thanks again girl!
