Our big activity for today was working to create electromagnets. This was a challenging experiment for the students – I told them what materials they would need, but left it to them to figure out how do it – but most groups successfully managed to create a simple electromagnet and use it to pick up some washers.
Other parts of the day were devoted to practicing the play and to working a little more on our music and art project.
