Water Compass- Ria, Liaba

  1. 1. Making a water compass  By Ria and Liaba
  2. 2. Question  How can you make a water compass?  Do you know how to make a water compass?  We will tell you.
  3. 3. Prediction  We think we will be able to make a water compass.  It will point north.
  4. 4. Plan (Steps)  Fill a cup with water.  Place an iron needle on your cork.  Tape the needle on the cork so it doesn’t fall off.  Stroke the needle about 15 times on your magnet (stroke from top to bottom in one direction)  Put the cork with the needle in the water.  Mark the plate with N, S. E and W.  Turn the plate so the needle is pointing to the N for north.
  5. 5. Results  Our results show that the front of the needle points north and the back of the needle points south.
  6. 6. Conclusion  I claim that this compass works.  I can prove that by showing a picture of it.  Our results show that the needle points north.  I found out that it is important to tape the needle on the cork.  You can use this in real life, because it tells you where north, south, east, and west is.  Next time I would change the plate into a deeper one.  I still wonder if the oil would work better than the water.
  7. 7. Real world uses  You can use this in real life.  You can use this in real life because it tells you where north, south, east, and west is.
