Computers & Internet, Language Arts, Science
6, 7, 8
By – Sue Johnson
Subject – Science, Language Arts, Internet
Grade Level – 6-8
To prepare students for participating in the annual science fair.
Grade Levels: 6, 7, 8
Materials: Expectations sheet from science teacher and English teacher, Pencil/pen, & notebook
Activities and Procedures:
To begin their research for the science fair we will spend 1 – 1 hour session examining what procedures should be taken to create a successful project. These sites go over the fundamentals on how to work through experiments and how to set up a science fair project. There are also links to other sites to get more information.
Getting started –
During the next – 1 hour session examine the following sites to get ideas for your project. Read and take notes as you may take a number of ideas to actually come up with what you want to do.
During the next 2 – 1 hour sessions you will have a chance to start researching your subject. You will need information about your topic for your background information.
Once you have gathered all of your background information you will take the requirements given to you by your English teacher and science teacher and type your report. You will be given at least 3 – 1 hours sessions to type your report, make your graphs, and do any other work you need for your display/project.
Time Required: At least 7 hours
Follow-Up/Extension: During this time, which will take about 4 weeks, the students will begin their experiments to go along with their research. More time will scheduled for those who need it.
