A teacher, Eunice, was covering the topic of magnets with her students. Her trigger activity was to have students conduct an experiment involving a freely hanging magnet and another magnet on hand.
Prior to this lesson, students had observed a freely hanging magnet and the direction in which the magnet came to rest in. They were instructed to predict the results of the experiment, which they wrote on a worksheet.
Students consequently conducted the experiment, with Eunice prompting them to feel how the magnets react when put together (Fig. 1). Afterwards, the class had a verbal discussion of the experiment before students went online to KF to post their observations, thoughts, and ideas (Fig. 2).
