Nervous about planning a science fair project. Are you part of the science fair committee? This workbook series will help guide young scientists through the scientific method and create a positive family experience.
The Kindergarten and First graders will develop experiments focusing on 2 changes. They will learn to create original investigations that make their first science fair a positive experience. Second and third graders will expand their projects to include 3 levels of the independent variable and start doing 2 trials or more. Fourth and fifth graders will independently create original investigations focusing on 3 or more levels and deciding how many trials they should perform. What a great way to prepare for middle school! Teachers and parents have all expressed how the methods in this workbook helped make the science fair a fun and rewarding experience.
We divide our fair into 3 groups. K-1, 2nd-3rd, and 4th-5th. This gives the students two years with the same expectations to help them become more familiar. We still give awards to each grade individually.
Ways to use the workbook
*Great for Science Fairs: Judging form included K-1 , 2nd-3rd, and 4th-5th Judging forms.
*Teachers can use the method to create investigations for classroom science units
*Use for a parent/student workshop before the science fair.
*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 for a unit on learning the parts of the scientific method.
