It has started in earnest! By next week all 3rd-8th graders will have started their science fair projects. Please listen to your child's ideas and provide them with feedback on their methodology, where they can find background research, and how they will acquire their materials. They will have time during their library visits over the next few weeks to start research as well as conference with me.
While some children are excited about this long-term project, others are filled with trepidation about the unknown. This is a big project and it may seem overwhelming right now. Let your child know that they should work a little at a time and you will be there for them throughout the process!
