Nervous about planning a science fair project. This workbook will help guide young scientists through the scientific method. Fourth and fifth graders will independently create original investigations that are age appropriate and create a positive experience. They will learn to perform experiments with at least 3 levels of the independent variable with 3-5 trials. Teachers and parents have all expressed how the methods in this workbook helped make the science fair a fun and rewarding experience.
Ways to use the workbook
*Great for Science Fairs: Judging form included
*Teachers can use the method to create investigations for classroom science units
*Homeschoolers can use the method to explore topics throughout the year.
*Great for group projects in class. Each group can create an original investigation about a topic they are studying and then share the results.
*Use the workbook for a unit on learning the parts of the scientific method. Test included.

This workbook is intended to be done with the student as the leader and the teacher/help providing guidance when needed. It educates the adult as well as the student. Teachers will love how easy it is to create an original investigation. Students will love creating a hands on project to call their own.
This is part of a series. Each workbook expands until the students reach 4th and 5th grade when they will be working independently.
