Butterfly Magnets

Preschool students are some of the most curious beings on the planet.

The problem, however, is that they don’t understand complex answers if you only use words.

“Magnetic fields” and “positive/negative terminals” mean little a preschoolers. It is for this reason that we are constantly having our students experiment with different kinds of magnets.

By exposing them to items, they are able to understand complex concepts through concrete knowledge.

To align this with our butterfly week, we decided to play with these fun butterfly magnets! In addition to manipulating the magnets, students also created patterns out of them.
