Next week we will be planning and carrying out a test to find out about the strength of magnets.
There are several different methods you can use to test the strength of a magnet. Can you think of any ways ?
Have a look at the two worksheets saved below. In each one, a different method is used to test which is the strongest magnet. In the first example a force meter is used which you might not have seen. We will look at these next week in school.
Answer the questions on the worksheets.
Then I would like you to think about some questions you could investigate about the strength of magnets
Are big magnets stronger than small magnets?
Write your questions down, ready to share in our next science lesson.
