Maglev Transportation System

My group and I improved by putting only one strip magnet on each side of the piece of paper that was the track, and putting one little strip magnet on each side of the foam, which was the vehicle. The time that my group failed was when we put all strip magnets next to each other and only one magnet on each side of the foam. The second time my group failed is when we didn’t test what side poles the magnets were on. I think the last one was successful because we tested what sides the magnets are on and we only put one strip magnet on each side.The poles had to be north facing north.

I thought working with a group is helpful because if someone didn’t have a successful idea the other person can add something that maybe will get your plan a little better. I also thought that the maglev transportation system was very fun. I think it was fun because we got to test what side all the magnets are on and the most fun part is when we started to build our maglev transportation system, and then test it to see how many marbles it held.

I Am Thankful For My Mom and Dad

My mom and dad bring joy to me everyday I am thankful for them because they make me feel better, they play with me, and they take me to special places. The first reason I am grateful for my mom and dad because they always make me feel better for example,they lay in bed with me and they give me medicine and play games with me. Also, when I am sad they always say, “What is wrong?” and give me hugs and kisses. The second reason I am grateful for my mom and dad is that they always play  with me. For example,when i ask them to play a board games like Sorry or Clue they always do it. The third reason I am thankful for my mom and dad is that they take me to special places. For example, they take me to the beach when I want to go.To conclude, they will always be there  to help me and give joy. I am thankful for them.
