This is one of a set of resources developed to support the teaching of the primary national curriculum. They are designed to support the delivery of key topics within science and design and technology. This resource focusses on developing understanding of magnetic materials by producing a maze game.
Magnets can be used to attract other magnetic materials, which makes them incredibly useful for use in products, such as toys and games. Can you successfully make and test a magnetic maze game?
In this activity learners will draw a maze layout on a plastic bottle and use a magnet to guide objects, such as a 1p coin, around the maze. They will learn about how magnets attract certain materials and apply this knowledge in an engaging practical context.
