Magnetism Display Idea

Displays play an important part in the classroom as they aid learning and provide visual stimulus for the children. Research published by the University of Salford showed that well-designed classrooms can improve learning progress in primary school pupils by up to 16%.

Below is a display idea for science and magnetism. I find that magnetism is such a hands on topic and may be quite challenging to display. I came up with this 3D magnet idea to attract the children’s attention and hopefully help them remember some of the non-magnetic and magnetic materials from our class investigations. 

It’s an easy display to create. For the magnet, all you need is some card. Cut out a magnet shape (horseshoe) out of the left over card, make cut rectangles and roll into a cylinder. Staple or stick at the back of the magnet and then pin on the board! 

The final result is something like this! 


I hope this post inspired you to create magnificent displays for your pupils! 

Till next time…
