Magnets – ASD Class

For this year’s Science Exhibition we combined sensory play, maths and science into one fun activity! We each took turns to find hidden objects in a tray filled with pasta and tested them to see if they were magnetic or non-magnetic. We sorted the objects into two sets and recorded our results on a data chart. We all had great fun using the horseshoe magnet and investigating what is attracted to it. Lorchán did a fantastic job presenting our work to parents in the hall.

have two cool parts on your body

that let you hear them all:

your ears!

your ears are in  charge of collecting sounds,

processing them, and sending sound signals to

your brain.And thats not all- your ears also help

you to keep balance. So if you bend over to pick

up your cat, you won’t fall down -or even worse-

fall on your cat. MEOW !

sounds are made when a objects vibrate.

the vibrations makes the air around

vibrate, and the air vibrations enter

your ear .you hear them…
