Camille: The three magnetic metals
are cobalt, iron, and nickel.
Camille: I would like to know how to make a magnet.
Person 1
Camille: The north end of a magnet will
not stick to another north end of a magnet,
but if you stick a north and to a south end,
they stick!
Camille: I would like to know what would happen if you
put a magnet underwater, and if it would still work.
Person 1
Abby: I know that if you put a magnet to curtain rocks that
the rocks will stick
Abby: I want to learn how long dose it take the magnetic
force to get to the item that is magnetic.
Person 2
Abby: If there is iron, cobalt, or nickle, in a globe it will make it spin if you turn your magnet
Abby: I want to see if the magnet can make an object
move under a piece of wood
Person 2
Ryan T: Magnets stick to Canadian
coins, because they are pre nickel.
Ryan T: I wonder how much weight it can move
Person 3
Ryan T:Magnets can be walls and you can make tables
out of magnets so they are helpful
Ryan T: I wonder if stick with plastic around it

Investigation #1: Magnets in our World
Use your magnets and materials to test what will stick and what will not stick to the magnets.
1.shiny nails

1.Soda straws
2.Dull nails
3.Black rocks
3.River pebbles
4.pieces of screen
4.Paper fasteners
5.Paper clips
5.Pieces of copper
6.Pieces of yarn
7.Pieces of cardboard
8.Rubber bands
9.Brass rings
10. Craft sticks
11.Plastic chips
12.Pieces of aluminum foil
Sticks doesn't stick


Go around the room. Use the magnets in the room to find what items are made of iron or steel ( the magnet sticks to it) and which are not made of iron or steel (the magnet does not stick to it).
Things made of iron or steel
Things that are not iron or steel
1.chair leg
2.iron bares (purple things by office)
3.back of hand sanitizer container
4.most of the doors
4.door knob
5.table legs
5.window extinguisher
6.flag pole
8.iron bench
8.library desk
10.table holder (the thing in thee office that holds the table)
Big Questions:
What materials did you discover magnets stick to?
I discovered that a magnet can stick to the wall
Describe what happens when two magnets come together.
What happens is they ether repel or they stick together

Investigation #2: Can the force of magnetism go through other materials? Which objects? Why? How do magnets and iron objects work together?
Objects that magnetism moves through
Objects that magnetism cannot move through
1.iron cover
2. nickle
3.metal (not metal that magnets can move through)
4.steel buddy
5.hand sanitizer (back of container)
6.wood (very thin wood)
7.two fingers together
8.steel bench
9.thick wood
Big Questions:
What objects allow magnetism to travel through?
the objects it can travel through are (always) iron, nickle, and cobalt
Why do you think this is so?
I think it is so because magnetism travels
How do magnets and iron objects work together?
they work because iron sticks to magnets
What is a temporary magnet?
it's not a magnet that can stick to a wall but's it's a magnet that can pick up a paper clip
What is an induced magnet?
a magnet that can stick to a locker

Investigation #3: How can the strength of the force of attraction between magnets be measured?
1.Test: Use this chart to record the data without the information for 2 spacers.
2.Graph your information using the the graph sheet "The Force". Take a picture and place it below this sentence when you are finished.
Number of Spacers
Number of Washers
Big Questions:
What was the best way to break the force?
the best way was just to test it out
What will happen to the force of attraction if you use plastic
spacers spacers between two attracting magnets?
the force wasn't as strong as a magnet and a magnet.
Look at the graph and predict what will happen
when you use 2 spacers?
We predict that it would be 7 washers.
Conclusion: What happened to the strength of attraction
between two magnets as the distance between them gets longer?
what happens is that
space of attraction gets expanded so the force gets longer.

Investigation #4: Detecting the Force of Magnetism
Big Questions:
How can you figure out where two magnets are taped
in a box without looking inside?
we figured out by putting a magnetic object
by where the magnet was
Why do the filings do when placed near a magnet?
Why do they do this?
they stick but only between the two magnets
Do you think the compass has iron in it?
Why do you think so?
no, I do not think the compass has iron in it because
it would stick if it did
What other things did you use to detect the magnets?
we used nails
Which device worked best for detecting the magnets?
Why do you think this is?
the paper clip because it sticks to magnets great
and its light as a feather
