Solving a Problem with a Magnet in Miss Steiner’s Kindergarten Class

Blog by Miss Steiner:

In science, students were faced with a problem that needed to be solved.  Oh no!  A chain of paperclips was dropped behind the bookcase and the teacher couldn’t reach it.  She needed the students’ help to try and figure out a way to get the paperclips back.  Students were given magnets, some yarn, tape and pipe cleaners to design and create a tool to problem solve.  The students used these materials to make a tool so we can use to reach and rescue the paperclips!
