View  Student and Class Science Projects! Have Fun Trying Science Activities!

I will continue to update this page as new information, materials and links are needed as we go through the science fair process.**
I have been pricing science fair display boards. Hobby Lobby is the cheapest ($4.99) and carries colored display boards.. Display boards are also available in black or white at Staples, but are almost double the price at $9.99. Pat Catan's at the Frenchtown Mall also has science display boards.

****Display board size is 45 inches tall and 54 inches across when laid flat. The side flaps are 12 inches across and the center section 30 inches across to equal the 54 inches. These are the measurements of the science fair display boards at Hobby Lobby and Staples.
*NO Header pieces for a title may be added to the top of the board.

Journals are worth 40%. Journals should have daily items done with science project recorded including work done at school, all procedures, materials, etc. while doing experiment, and results recorded in the journal. Make sure you include the research topics we went over in school and the description of any work you did on the research ( I found an article, I began the rough draft) The important thing is to add detail to what you do! You should also proofread prior to my journal checks.

***All forms and data before students begin the experiment will be gone through and discussed with each student individually with suggestions/corrections before the student begins the experiment with  Mrs. Wickenheiser.
