Mr. Musselman's Magnet Show!

On Wednesday, Mr. Musselman of the Burlington Science Center was in to visit the Kindergartners of Pine Glen and share with us his magnet program.  We learned how strong magnets can be and discussed many of their uses.  Magnets stick to metals like iron, cobalt and nickel.  Note: nickels only have a small amount of nickel in them (they are mostly copper), so magnets do not stick to them!  He showed us many different kinds of magnets and told us various stories about them.  Be sure to ask your children about the North and South pole of a magnet and have them use the new science words attract and repel! Mr. Musselman was impressed with the students knowledge of magnets. Way to go kindergartners!
