    Iron is a kind of metal and a chemical element which is a chemical symbol. We can use iron to build buildings because if we use feathers to build buildings it won’t stand properly and it is not strong enough.

    Iron is a chemical element and metal. Its chemical symbol is Fe and its atomic number is 26

    Because iron oxidizes so easily, it is rarely found in a pure metal form on the Earth’s surface. It is instead removed from ores (rocks containing important minerals and elements).

    Iron is the 4th most common element in the Earth’s crust, making up around 5% of the total (usually found as iron oxide in minerals like hematite).

    The Earth’s core is thought to be made up of an iron and nickel alloy.

    Gas giant plants such as Saturn and Jupiter have cores that are rich in iron.

    Iron is the 6th most common element found in the Universe.

    Steel is a well known and commonly used alloy made from iron and a small amount of carbon (or sometimes other elements). The amount of carbon is small (usually between 0.2% and 2.0%) but it makes a huge difference to the strength.

    Steel can be around 1000 times stronger than iron in its pure form.

    The Eiffel Tower in Paris, France is made from puddle iron. Puddle iron is a form of wrought iron, an iron alloy with a very low level of carbon content. Wrought iron was used commonly throughout western history but is no longer produced in large amounts due to the availability of steel.

    The early wrought iron used in human history actually came from meteors!

    Iron is a type of metal and it’s tough and is resistance to harsh conditions(like wind,rain).

    Iron has some special properties compared to other metal.

    there is no other metal witch can be substitute to iron that we use everyday in agriculture,heavy machinery,and fencing.

      This is good research Adam. Think about using this in class to write the fact file for iron. Well done.
