The science fair is coming! On Thursday March 10th RES students in grades K-4 are invited to come and share their great science fair projects with our community. The science fair is a great way for students and families to work together to explore and learn about topics that interest them.
Not sure where to get started? I highly recommend starting with your interests! Is there a topic you studied in school that you would like to learn more about? Is there something you have always wondered about--maybe how it works? Do you have a special collection you would like to share?
The RES science fair is a non judged family event...which means adult help is welcome and appreciated..AND kids can work together to create projects too!
Not sure where to get started? Here are a few resources!
I love this website. It has tons of great project ideas and even lets you answer a survey to narrow down the choices to your interests!
This site also has great examples, and includes some great videos which will support visual learners too! Although they are also a business trying to sell science materials, it includes many great free resources in the 'Experiments' section:
And one more of my favorites!
In addition, the RES school library is full of science project ideas and resources. Did you know you can check out additional books with a family account? See Mrs. Redford to set this up.
And lastly, I have several science project idea books, and am happy to discuss and brainstorm ideas with kids or families....just stop by and see me, OR email me to set up some time!
The science fair is always a highlight of my teaching year, and I look forward to seeing the projects that you all create. Happy Experimenting, Discovering and Learning!
