Science Fair Time!!!
It is that time of year where the fourth and fifth graders at Sexton Mountain are beginning to prepare for the Science Fair! Our school Science Fair will be held on Friday, April 22 from 6:30-8:30. We will be spending a great deal of class time getting our projects ready for display.
If your student hasn't chosen a science inquiry question for their Science Fair project, please visit www.sciencebuddies.org and help them find a project. Remember that the project is INQUIRY based, so no models! The question your student chooses must have ONE testable and measurable variable. After student gets parent approval he/she will bring the project idea to school for teacher approval.
Please see the link below to the official fourth grade Science Fair letter which students should have brought home last Friday. This explains how much help you should be giving your student and what components of the project will be happening at home and at school. Any questions, please email or call.
