Dear Science Fair Families!
We are kicking off our first Annual (hopefully) Meadow View Science Fair! The Fair will take place on March 9, 2011 from 9-11am. K-5 students will be touring the exhibits and learning about science during their PE time.
Please collaborate with your 6th grader about their project. They will need to bring certain materials to class next week (Monday) to begin performing their experiments. I have asked students to split the materials list so as not to burden one student with assembling the project.
Students will also need a cardboard presentation board or a large piece of cardboard from a box to create one with. Please keep your eye out for something like this. We need only one presentation board per presentation/group of presenters.
Students may practice elements of their experiments at home with their partners. However, I would like to do most of this during class time so that they follow the Scientific Method (collecting data, etc.) with care.
Thank you for your scientific support!
