Product Description
Science Become a Physicist Project
Appropriate for grades 6-8 & Homeschool


PURPOSE:
This product serves as a template to create your very own miniature science fair project. Students will research a simple “trick” about how the world works that can be explained with physics. Then you will have the opportunity to have a presentation day.

WHAT’S INCLUDED:
This product contains:
     ☆The Printable Project Description
     ☆Group Demonstration Planning Sheet
     ☆Observer Graphic Organizer
     ☆Project Rubric

STORY:
Science Fair Projects can often be very time consuming - thinking of a project, designing an experiment, collecting results, gluing things to a board and bringing it all back to school. I decided this year to simplify the process and let students work as partners to give a physical science demonstration about how the world works. I had given many demonstrations in class like the classic "egg sucked into a bottle" trick, "pulling the table cloth out from under the dishes" trick and the ever popular "cola sinks, diet cola floats" trick. Students were fascinated by these demonstrations and I got the idea to let them come up with their own based on a little research.

POSSIBLE EXTENSIONS:
Download this project and let the students teach the science concepts for the day. Invite other classrooms over and have yourself a proper mini-science fair!

MATERIALS/PRE-REQS:
Besides this file, you may require:
     ☆Computers/iPads for the students to research with
     ☆I would recommend presenting a few project ideas like the ones I have listed above
     ☆Check Youtube for “kids physics demos”
