Science Fair Fun Begins!

     Today I began teaching the steps of the Scientific Method to prepare students for the upcoming Science Fair. The information below might give students some ideas of projects that might interest them. The projects aren't mandatory in 4th grade, however I highly encourage all of my students to do one for extra credit. They don't have to be entered into the Science Fair to be judged, that decision can be made by the students. To prepare students to do a project we will do a class project in class and display our data on a full size board. Next week there should be a link on the school site to our Science Fair packet with all of the information to explain each step in the process with deadlines.

Also a great site for ideas is:
