Science Fair Projects
Science Fair time is here again! In class, the students have been introduced and have practiced the scientific method since the first few weeks of school. Now, it is their turn to show-off what they have learned. Students can select a project and begin the process: Title, Question, Hypothesis, Materials, Procedure, Observations, and Conclusions (many books which include science projects are in the classroom and can be checked out if needed). Please keep a science journal of work that is started, research that is found, and reading that is completed. As February 23rd approaches, have your student prepare a tri-fold board which includes the process from above. Pictures add a lot to the presentation and the journal needs to be included. Each classroom will have the opportunity to send the student with the best project to the State Science Fair. Let's make it hard for the judges to choose just one best from Owyhee. We will include pictures of some projects in March.
