Graphing with magnets!

Here is my new data center! I used one of those big oil pans from Walmart (in the automotive section for about $10) and mounted it to the back of a shelf with 3M removable Command adhesive. Inside each ball there is a magnet! I cut a small slit in the ball and dropped in a small powerful magnet. Students are loving moving the ball with their name into the appropriate column according to the question. This has been so much fun for everyone!


  1. Hi, I'm your newest follower.
    I love this idea! We've been using ribbon and clothes pins for question of the day/graphing but this looks really fun! Where did you get the balls?

  2. Hi,
    The balls are from Wal-Mart:)
    They were in a big bag (I think sold as refills for ball pits?)
    Thanks for your comment!
