Sad to say, but, at least for most students and teachers, summer is over. If they haven’t gone back already, families are prepping for the first day of school and teachers are busy preparing lesson plans, organizing classrooms, and sorting out supplies. That’s where we come in! The educational experts at Dowling Magnets have pulled together a list of our best-selling magnetic science sets, math demonstration sets, language arts lessons, and teacher supplies, each designed to make your job easier and your classroom cuter. Check them out today and make this year your very best year yet!
For Super Engaging Science Lessons:
Quickly and easily set up small group science activities with a Classroom Attractions set! With specific sets for three grade groups, each including enough magnetic pieces for groups of 5-10 students and a teacher’s guide featuring six hands-on magnetic investigations, these sets are self-contained, comprehensive, classroom magnet labs! Choose Level 1 for grades Pre-K-2, Level 2 for grades 1-3, or Level 3 for grades 4-6, and watch as your students explore attraction and repulsion, compare magnet strengths, explore magnetic poles and fields, and so much more. And yes, each set is aligned with Next Generation Science Standards.
Older students can conduct super cool science experiments, including revealing invisible magnetic fields, with the Iron Filings Variety Pack! Simply select the fine, medium, or course mesh filings, shake onto a sheet of paper, then place a magnet, like our Red Ceramic Bar Magnet or Ceramic Horseshoe Magnet underneath and watch as the magnetic field reveals itself. Students can also use the filings to view a bar magnet’s poles, sculpt a magnetic masterpiece or make amazing magnetic patterns using multiple types of magnets. When they’re done, shake the reusable filings back into their jars for next time.
For Magnetic Math Fun:
Provide a big, bold, helpful visual for students mastering counting to 120 with the Magnetic Demonstration Number Line! Big, bright, and easy to see from anywhere in the classroom, this bright yellow magnetic number line features numbers -10 to 120 and color coding for events and odds. And yes, it’s aligned with current Common Core State Standards!
Once your students have mastered counting, move on to simple mental math with the oversized, colorful Magnetic Demonstratoin 0-120 Chart! This colorful, magnetic charge features big, quadrant pieces (stop assembling all those strips!), numbers 0-120, colorful frames to draw attention to specific numbers and number patterns, number cover-up squares perfect for quizzing, and a special, T-shaped, more/less than piece to build mental math fluency.
Easily demonstrate place value at the front of the class using one of two Magnetic Place Value Disks & Headings sets, then pass the magnetic place value disks to your students for hands-on practice on magnetic lap boards! Disks are color coded by place value – white for ones, red for tens, orange for hundreds, and yellow for thousands. Choose from the Grades 1-3 set or the Grades 3-6 set which includes color-coded ten thousands, hundred thousands, and millions disks in addition to ones, tens, hundreds, and thousands.
