Plant Post #1

For my group plant experiment we put seltzer instead of water.

On our manipulated variable there were four quads with four wicks seven plants with five leaves on each plant. For our controlled variable there are four quads with four wicks and four plants with five leaves on each plant.

Our group of three worked well. We all agreed on thing and were friendly.

But, if we feed the plant seltzer then the plant will die because carbonation has gas and gas kills plants.  




Final Maglev Train Group #1

YES!! We finished our final maglev train. It can now carry weight. For example We put double the magnets on the track. There is a stronger magnetic force to now carry weights.

The train had no improvements. I think it was a great idea of the group and I to add extra magnets.

It was a great experience learning about the E.D.P and how magnets work. I never knew what a Maglev train was!

And I have a goal for next time I am in a group: AGREE TO ALMOST EVERYTHING!!!!

Maglev Group #1

A maglev train (magnetic levitating train)is a train that levitates using magnets. The tracks are magnetic and the bottom of the train is also magnetic. In this case, the magnets facing each other are the same poles (north to north or south to south) so the train levitates.

We tried to put five discs under the car and three strips on the track. We didn’t get it to work but we got close, we worked hard and let each other talk. We were very confident and we all said our thoughts and we are still going!

We worked very well together although we had some disagreements. But other than that we did awesome together. I think with our smart group we will do it.

Roan lives on Tatoonie.  His father is a pilot and he wants to be one too.  Roan takes a go at pilot school and gets rejected!  What will he do?  Roan’s mom asks him to go to plant school, but he thinks it’s boring.  Then he finds Jedi Academy.  Now he wants to be a Jedi.  Will he or will he not become a Jedi?  I think that it’s a great book because of the drawings, the language, and story type.  I hope you enjoy the book, if you read it.
