Science Fair!

As you all know, the science fair is quickly approaching! Completed science fair boards are due on Friday, April 11. The science fair will be held on April 15th and I think it is going to be fabulous! Most of the experiments are complete, so the final step is to prepare for the actual presentation. The students must be present during judging and have to be able to discuss their project and answer questions presented by the judges. The judging and grading will be based on the same rubric, which is attached below. You should go through the rubric item by item to be sure that all of the elements are included. I also have a sample science fair board in my classroom if you would like to get an idea of how you can set up the board. Boards may be purchased in the office for $3.

Quick Science Fair Tips:

· Type each part of your experiment and use a large font size  - if you cannot print, you can email your materials or put them on a disk and I can print them for you (if you don't have access to a computer, we can try to make time for you to type your work, or you may come in after school, just make sure to arrange it with me first.)

· Include photos to make it more interesting

· Bring any artifacts, samples, or materials you can

· Anything hand written should be done in your best handwriting

· Follow the rubric – this is exactly what the judges will be using to score your project

· Make sure all parts of your experiment tie into your question

*NOTE: No science or DLR homework will be assigned until after the science fair - students will still be expected to complete the weekly reading log.*
