This year I decided that I would do a project with both my 1st grade tatter tots & my Kinder Kids. Crazy, I know. However, I felt that my students don't often go through the whole Science Fair experience because they are afraid to try. They don't understand the language, scientific process & well I am sure some of them don't even know where to start. There is also the fact that most of their parents can't help them either.
The problem I have, I should say HAD, is what project to do with the students. So I was at the libray the other day picking up some farm books for my Kindergartners & found these lovely & perfect books.
The Everything Kids Magical Science Experiments Book
Guide to the Best Science Fair Projects
and my favorite,
HELP! My Science Fair project is due tomorrow!
I found several projects that I liked & picked 2 that we could do quickly because you know the Science Fair is next week. YIKES! I better get in gear. I will take lots of pictures & post next week... I hope.
How do you chose your experiments?
EDIT: P.S. Always First Grade is hosting a Linky Party. If you have not yet visited go take a look around.
