Slide 18: 

Magnets are all around you. This magnet is on the hallway door. Go find a magnet in your house or in your classroom. Brandon

Slide 19: 

This is how we wrote our book: We read lots of books about magnets in guided reading groups during ELA time. We talked about voice and looked at the photos. Everybody said one idea about magnets and we made a list. Each person wrote their idea into a sentence on draft paper. We revised and edited our sentences. Mrs. Gacioch helped with our writing. An idea sketch was drawn for each photograph. Each person set up their photograph by themselves. Mrs. Baxter took the pictures with a digital camera. We went on the computer and typed our text on a Power Point slide. Mrs. Waddington showed us how to get on Power Point and how to save our work. Last we inserted our photograph into our text slide. It was work but it was fun work. We love magnets and we love science!
