2. Aluminum rod
3. Copper rod
4. Brace rod
5. Plastic rod
I predict the plastic rod will slide first, the aluminum rod will slide second, the wood rod will slide third, the copper rod will slide forth, and the brace rod will slide fifth.

1. The heat energy from the water made the butter slide down the rods. I also know that some rods are better conductors than others.
2. The main differences were that there was water and butter, that the water didn't melt or didn't slide down a rod, and the butter didn't stay were we put it neither did the water but the water only moved side to side.
3. They were not what I expected I thought that the wood was going to be first but it was the last one.
4.The copper and the aluminum, were the to best conductors, because it took 2 seconds for copper, and 7 seconds for aluminum to slide.
5. The plastic took 2,640 seconds and we don't now how long it took the wood (bamboo) to slide down the rod.
6. It can be yes and no, if the water is heated up, then it is a conductor of heat. If it isn't heated up then it is not a conductor.
7. We use conductors in our life when we are doing science experiments. Also we do it when we are testing materials and doing science. I think it matters which materials are good or bad conductors because we need to know what materials are good conductors and what materials are bad. because when we need to make something melt quickly then we will get the answer.
