Ms. Parsons’ 2nd Graders Problem Solve with STEM

Ms. Parsons’ second grade class teamed up with 3-5 Visions teacher Mrs. Collins for a STEM activity about magnets. Students learned about how magnets can help prevent cows from getting a serious illness called “hardware disease.”   Veterinarians insert a large magnet into one of the cow’s first 4 stomachs to prevent it from digesting harmful bits of metal.  Students designed and created devices that use magnets to solve problems with bits of metal.
