Day 138- Paula Abdul teaches science

That's right, our science lesson was brought to us by none other than Paula Abdul! My students were thrilled! My fellow teachers were in awe! And all I had to do was go to youtube and fine {THIS} handy little video!

What a blast from the past, right? I bet you're wondering what we were studying. Well, if you listen to the chorus, (which is what we listened to in class)  I bet you can figure it out for yourself.

That's right! MAGNETS!

Opposites attract! Magnets have two poles, north and south, and they connect with each other. They won't connect to the same pole!

Check out this video for proof!
My students had the best time watching the magnets chase each other on the ELMO. I let everyone hold one magnet and I let them feel the 'push' from the other magnet.

We went on to talk about how magnets were attracted to metals what had iron and steel in them. In this video we see how strong a magnetic hold can be.

How fun! And who knew that Paula Abdul could be educational?

Here is our vocabulary for the week:

I wonder which celebrity will teach us tomorrow?!
