Learning during school hours is, quite often, not enjoyable for students. Self-directed activities such as the 5th grade science projects allow the kids to learn from involvement with hands-on projects, and that type of learning is shown to be retained by the student. Students involved in science fairs build friendships with other students and develop strong relationships with teachers and other leaders, making this type of event a valuable teaching tool. National attention is currently focused on student achievement in lower grades, with particular emphasis being placed on reading, math, and science. Opportunities like 5th grade science projects allow students to explore areas that are not always well covered in classes. Placing an emphasis on the core subjects (including science) beginning in 1st grade can foster an increased awareness of the relationship between subjects. Science and math are closely related, and generally success in one may lead to success in the other. Science fairs provide the student with multiple learning opportunities in those areas if the projects selected meet the criteria outlined above.

The third stage of learning is knowledge. Knowledge comes from applying the information you have gleaned to your work or your life. Until you apply that information, you cannot say that you really know it. For example, I like to cook. I have watched many cooking shows on television, and they provide a lot of data on recipes, ingredients, and cooking methods. Do I remember it all? No - I filter all that data for what I like to eat - those recipes that I would like to try become information for me - information that is relevant to my tastes in food and purposeful in that I want to try to make a particular recipe myself. But it is only when I actually try the recipe and cook something that I can say that I know how to make that dish.

You are standing at a pivotal crossroads once again in your life, not unlike the time frame during your 10th to 11th year. What year was it when you were 10-11 years old? What was the decidedly prominent focus occurring in the local, national, and worlds news? This information can be found on the internet should you be so inclined, interested and vested enough to search for it. What you turn over from the soil of discontent will prove to be surprising and relevant. The undisputed fact that everything is connected shows its true light during this dark search. It was during this phase of your individual life, that an element of unexpressed talent can be recovered. You laughed a lot, felt uninhibited and free as you never had before or since.

In other words, some sort of definitive ongoing relationship with yourself and the exacting knowledge, in a specific field of endeavor, still lingers influencing your actions, thoughts and behavior. Though you may be totally unaware of its swaying breeze of artistic balm, an unnamable restlessness beckons to be reunited with its soothing patterned paradigm. I encourage you to answer this very personal ubiquitous inner call. Nothing else will satisfy the gnawing unsettling disturbance until you do. Every single act you undertake is being subtly influenced by that 10-11 time period in meaningful ways. Little things unnoticed before will suddenly appear as if out of nowhere to urge you onto and into your grail search of heroic splendor. You are in search of part yourself left waiting in halls of the 5th grade. {IF you absolutely can not recall the flavor of intensity in the 5th grade, try the same experiment on the 6th.} But, I remain firmly grounded on my position that it is the 5th grade, undoubtedly that makes the difference. Its where you found what really mattered to you and what didnt.

Talk shows sure know how to treat their guests! Upon arriving at the Paramount lot, I was led to the "green room," where guests waiting to go on the show sipped tea, coffee or even booze (if they were desperate enough). I opted for plain water, my mouth was parched. While waiting, a very frazzled producer stopped by and quickly requested that I make a short ten-second statement on tape to be played later. I said something like, "Mrs. Jordan, you made a very big difference in my life, and I am here to thank you for it." The producer snatched the tape and disappeared like there was no tomorrow. I was alone again. Looking around the room, I was mesmerized by all the photos on the red walls (why do they call it the green room??) of famous people who were previously on the Leeza show. I was jostled out of my reverie when the door suddenly burst open and the same producer was back.

I will not talk in class. Write this sentence 100 times; it is due tomorrow! The homework assignment punishing my entire 5th grade class angered me. The teachers stern words pierced my heart. I remember thinking, "This is ridiculous to spend time after school writing a useless sentence." I realize now why I dreaded school; today its called attention deficit disorder. I spent many hours each night laboring over homework assignments. "How am I going to complete this stupid assignment in addition to my daily homework?" Internally, I protested the boondoggle assignment. Little did I know that punishment in 5th grade would transform into a gift. After writing those 6 words 100 times, I learned how to memorize anything, although unapparent to that 5th grader.
