3rd Grade science fair projects are fun for students, teachers and Moms. Projects for this grade level usually involve simple, yet hands-on experimenting with various objects that surround us in our everyday life. Even though the assistance of the teacher or Mom is often necessary, 3rd grade science fair projects should be, for the most part, easy enough for the student to handle the majority of the experimentation. Children, from a very young age, ask many questions, and even do their own simple experiments with their toys, water or anything they can get their hands on! We as adults may not realize that a child at play is actually performing his own experiment. A young child will see how many blocks he can stack before they fall over; see how many cups of water will fill his bucket or what will happen if he drops the egg on the floor! If parents could learn to perceive their childs action as experimental, rather than naughty or normal, than the parent will be able to assist the child to answer his own question through experimentation. Children learn through play and by doing things themselves, therefore let your child explore his environment, provided it is done in a safe manner. A child who is allowed to experiment will increase confidence in his abilities and develop good problem solving skills. Instead of answering his question with the obvious answer to us, as adults, "the egg will break - dont drop it on the floor", let your child drop the egg and see for himself what will happen!
Main Characters - Who will support you in your business? Do you have an assistant? Coach? Belong to a Mastermind? When I first started my business, it was just me doing everything. Along the way, I added support as I quickly realized that I could not accomplish my dreams and goals without more help. Today, I have a virtual assistant, a web designer and a project assistant. Support is a key factor in building and sustaining a successful business. 4. Plot - Whats the vision for your business? What does your Big Idea, Dream, or Goal look like? This was the most challenging part for my son Jack. Taking what he read and being able to articulate it in a format that would make sense to anyone who picked up the report but may have never read the book. This, too, is true for your business. You need to be able to articulate your business idea and what it does with real vision and clarity, so that when you meet with your ideal client, they understand that what you have to offer is for them.
When determining what to select for 5th grade science projects, there are several factors that should be considered. What are the teaching objectives? Is the project practical for this age group? What is the cost factor involved? Is the project simple enough for students in this age group to complete successfully and learn from? If the project is to be entered into a science fair, is it portable? Perhaps most importantly, will the student have fun completing the project? The cost factor must be kept to a level that the student or the students parents can easily afford. Some schools may have scholarships available, but not all will. In high poverty areas this is especially important, so take advantage of any financial aid that is available. Being eliminated from competition based on the lack of financial ability may teach the student a lesson, but not the desired one. Lessons learned at this age will affect the students future attitude toward learning. Completing 5th grade science projects can enhance a students curiosity and willingness to learn in later grades. Relatively simple projects relating to physics principles or global warming might well foster an interest in more advanced projects later.
The second major problem deals with the parents. Because the series is so different, parents quickly find that what they are seeing in their childs textbook doesnt look like anything they ever called math. They quickly discover that they are unable to help their children with questions, and they dont understand the spiraling concept of UCSMP so it seems to them that their child is weak in basic skills. They dont know that their child will have better retention and understanding of mathematics at the end of the year than the students of a traditional text. They dont know because no one explained anything to them. UCSMP requires an enormous amount of explanation and training for the parents. (Im sure you can foresee the problems of having poorly prepared teachers trying to explain UCSMP to frustrated parents. Its not a pretty sight.) With the problematic issues surrounding UCSMP, does this young teacher deserve to be fired? Absolutely! He made very poor choices based on his own arrogance. He broke his contract with the school district and, thus with the students and parents. He used the internet for his own purposes. (I suspect to garner support for his decision.) And he was setting up his students for future failure. Unforgivable.
3rd grade science fair projects are a lot of fun because at this age children are eager to explore the world around them and find out how things work. They are constantly wanting to know the answer to the question "What happens if I do this..." and therefore they will likely come up with many different experiments theyd like to try. It may be difficult to decide on just one! At this age they have a short attention span though, so the projects must be simple, fun and fairly short. There are many, many different project ideas for this age group such as; do all the children in their class have the same size hands and the same size feet as each other? They can research this by tracing the other childrens hands and feet on a piece of paper and comparing them to each other.
Its tomorrow. Its recess. Im standing at the bottom of the high slide on my trusty crutches because my friend is climbing the scary stairs to the top so she can make the exhilarating glide down and land triumphantly at my feet. We will both giggle at the fun of it all. Just before my friends turn to slide down, the boy who was climbing the stairs ahead of her stopped at the top and hollered for everyone on the playground to watch him. As we all watched expectantly, he dug deep, with both hands, into the pockets of his blue jeans. Next thing I knew rocks were careening pell-mell down that high slide at me. I was the target. I was an easy mark, since I hadnt yet mastered the art of nimble crutching. Above the cries of my friend waiting to come down to me, he yelled out, "Thats what she gets. Shes fat and crippled and retarded and has rocks in her head." There was a lot of laughter. I eventually learned to walk well - no braces, no crutches, post-polio syndrome in check. Hurray! Im special. "Sticks and stones can break my bones, but names can never hurt me." I only think about that grade school high slide incident every ten years or so when something or someone reminds me how mean a few bullies can be. Mostly, I have nothing but positive memories of precious school days - mine and those of my three children.
