Part 1
A = materials
B = procedures
C = laptop/wiki
We tested each thing against the magnet and then put them into to piles. The first pile was things that don't stick. The second pile was things that stick. Somethings atrracted (push together) to magnets. Somethings repeled (push appart) the magnet. Each thing that stuck to the magnet had a force (something you can feel, but cannot see.). Types of metal that stick to magnets are: iron, nickel, colbalt, steel (if it has enough iron in it).
Stick: Shiny Nails, Black Rocks, Pieces of Screen, Paper Clips, Washers, Screws
Don't Stick: Dull Nails, Soda Straws, Sponges, River Pebbles, Paper Fasteners, Pieces of Copper, Peices of Yarn, Peices of cardboard, Rubber Bands, Brass Rings, Craft Sticks, Plastic Chip, Peices of Aluminum Foil

Part 2
B = materials
C = procedures
A = laptop/wiki
Today's first chalange was to see if we could make a chain by a magnetic force. We started connecting paper clips and it worked.
The second chalange was to see if we could connect a nail to a magnet and try to pick something up with the nail it worked.
The third chalange was to see if we could have a nail then paper clips and on the other side would be a magnet then see if the nail and the paper clips would stay yes it worked.
we learned that a magnet can only grab something so far and the legnth is 1 cm depending on how much the magnet has been dropped. We also learned three new words: temporary, permanent, and enduced.

Part 3
C = materials
A = procedures
B = laptop/wiki
We sticked a magnet through some spacers. We tested how many washers the force could hold. For example, 0 spacers held 9 washers. Look at the chart in the next column.
Class Data For Spacers:
0 spacers = 9 washers
1 spacer = 6 washers
2 spacers = 5 washers
3 spacers = 3 washers
4 spacers = 2 washers
5 spacers = 2 washers
6 spacers = 2 washers

Part 4
A = materials
B = procedures
C = laptop/wiki
Today we made boxes and taped magnets inside the boxes. We tried to detect where each others magnets were. We made a chart.
