Science Fair Day

The day finally arrived!

The science fair was great.  

There were a variety of science projects and a huge span of ages of children that participated.  They all received a certificate for participating.  It was amazing to see all the hard work and dedication, even from some very young children.   

Here are the other projects we saw:
Learning about electricity 
Electricity & alternative Energy (a huge hit with Ian & Alec!)


The boys loved that these snap circuits ran a mini windmill and made all sorts of noises too.  It didn't hurt that the boy had made electricity poles out of chocolate and pretzels that he was passing out. 


Static electricity at work!


This butterfly study drew the kids in by allowing them to color their own bookmark to take home. 
The mammal study complete with definition of mammals, toy mammals, puzzles, books and activity sheets was a huge hit w/ Alec!

This girls human body study was very in- depth!  She filled in tons of diagrams, wrote a report, remade the body using a 3-5 and 2-d model and then she brought a brain jello- mold for snacks and an operation game.  It was great and so clever!


This little boy's rain forest study was very impressive.  He couldn't
have been more than 4 and he did most of the writing himself,
he also made tons of art projects to go along with it 


This boys took his nature collection and sorted according to type of tree and even labeled many of the specimens
Ian's favorite display was on rocks and minerals.  They had fools
gold, sulfur, mica, amethyst. 

Here he is studying them all. 


Ian is learning how to make molecules! 
This young boy used animal crackers to show animal habitats.  It was cute & of course he brought animal crackers to share
Alec is playing an instrument made of wood and wire while learning about music
