10 Using the Scientific Method Hypothesis: (What do you think will happen?) ___________________________________________________ Question: (What do you want to find out?) Are all metal objects magnetic (able to be attracted by a magnet)? I think…

11 Procedure: 1. Test each object by holding one end of a magnet close to the object. If the object is pulled to the magnet, then it is magnetic. If the object is not affected by the magnet, then it is not magnetic.

12 Results: (What happened during the experiment?) ObjectMagneticNot Magnetic steel spoon aluminum foil iron safety pin copper penny iron nail silver dollar steel soup can lid iron paper fastener brass screw iron bobby pin gold jewelry

13 Conclusion: (What did you learn from this experiment?) All metal objects _______ magnetic. are/are not Magnets can attract _______________________ ______________________________________.

14 Hypothesis: (Make your hypotheses in the table below.) Question: Can a magnet attract through other objects? ObjectMagnet CAN attract through it Magnet CANNOT attract through it Plastic lid Steel spoon Wool cloth Steel soup can lid Cardboard Paper plate Plastic bag Aluminum foil Rubber balloon Wooden popsicle stick Silver dollar Water Glass

15 Procedure: 2. Attach a magnet to the board so that the paper clip will attract to the magnet but not touch it. (There will be space between the magnet and the paper clip.) 3. Place each object to be tested between the magnet and the paper clip. If the paper clip is not affected, the magnet can attract through the object. If the paper clip falls, the magnet cannot attract through the object. 1. Attach a paper clip to one end of a piece of fishing line. Tape the other end of the fishing line to the chalk/marker tray.

16 ObjectMagnet CAN attract through it Magnet CANNOT attract through it Plastic lid Steel spoon Wool cloth Steel soup can lid Cardboard Paper plate Plastic bag Aluminum foil Rubber eraser Wooden popsicle stick Silver dollar Water Glass Results: (What happened during the experiment?)

17 Conclusion: (What did you learn from this experiment?) Magnets __________ attract through things. can/cannot Magnets can attract through _________________ _______________________________________

18 Are all metal objects magnetic (able to be attracted by a magnet)?

19 Results: (What happened during the experiment?) ObjectMagneticNot Magnetic steel spoon aluminum foil iron safety pin copper penny iron nail silver dollar steel soup can lid iron paper fastener brass screw iron bobby pin gold jewelry X X X X X X X X X X X nickel X

20 Conclusion: (What did you learn from this experiment?) All metal objects _______ magnetic. are/are not Magnets can attract _______________________ ______________________________________. are not iron, steel, and nickel.

21 Can a magnet attract through other objects?

23 Conclusion: (What did you learn from this experiment?) Magnets __________ attract through things. can/cannot Magnets can attract through _________________ _______________________________________ can anything that is not magnetic (attracted to a magnet).
