More last minute lessons. They didn't get done earlier, because we were super busy with waiting for the lambs to be born, then taking care of lamb and mother, cleaning out the sheep pen (more than I ever thought I would), and so many other projects that go along with our ag school.

Today the students rotated through five magnet stations (there were six, but I opted out of the last for time and supply issues). I was totally surprised how well it went. The station booklet and direction that I found on TpT was free. Thanks Ashleigh, the kids loved it and they learned so much.

Here are some pictures.

Learning about magnets and how they could "float".

What is magnetic and what is not?

How many paper clips can a horseshoe magnet hold on top? Or on the bottom?

My favorite part was at the end of the rotation time asking what they learned or surprised them. Wow--they did learn something and they practiced working together in a group. Win-win.

Tomorrow we have field day in the afternoon. So glad the weather has been fabulous.
