Search for Life on Mars (SLM) – Wiki Entry 2
In class you have conducted readings, notes and experiments about magnetism. For your second Wiki entry you are to write two paragraphs. In the first paragraph you need to define what magnetism is and give three examples of how magnetism can affect objects. In a second paragraph you should brainstorm and then write about the uses of magnetism on a trip to Mars where the goal is to search for life.

Additionally, find two pictures that relate to your two paragraphs – one picture for each paragraph. Save those pictures with names that start with your initials, e.g. elh_magnetism.jpg. Then upload the pictures and add them to your Wikispace entry.

You will be putting your completed works on a Wikispace with your name, the link for each of Mr. Himburg’s class periods is below – scroll down to find your name.

Your final Wiki entry should contain:
  • A title describing the contents of the entry
  • 1 paragraph summarizing magnetism and three of its effects.
  • 1 paragraph explaining the uses of magnetism on a mission to Mars searching for life.
