Day 3 I recap the process they have been through over the past couple of days. I set some boundaries and expectations for the conversation we are about to have. Respect Gets Respect is our mantra. What happens next is amazing. Giggly is long gone, replaced with a real desire to listen, learn and understand. A valuable conversation ensues. Every once in a while the kids need to be redirected and reminded about the boundaries. Good facilitation is the key... and I am great at that. And practicing new skills makes perfect... which is exactly what the kids are doing. Lots and lots of great questions. To be honest, the kids ask the kinds of questions that many adults strive to sort out in their own efforts to understand and appreciate gender differences. A significant amount of time was spent on the theme, "Why cant they be more like us?" The boys wanted the girls to be more like them. The girls wanted the boys to be more like them.
Finding good ideas for a 6th grade science project can be overwhelming at times if you are uncertain of where to get the ideas. If you find yourself wanting to hide your head when this time rolls around for the annual 6th grade science project, you are not looking in the right places for ideas, and you are possibly conveying a negative message to your children concerning the 6th grade science project. We all have memories from our school days when we had to do the infamous 6th grade science project, and most of them are more likely than not to be bad, however by keeping it upbeat and encouraging, you can teach your child(ren) that completing an assignment like this will not only further their knowledge, but also help them learn to be a productive individual on their own.
6th grade science experiments are fairly easy to come up with. All you need to do is come up with a topic that interests you. Originality is not the key factor here. The judges want to see that you are capable of performing an experiment on your own, writing up a report on it and present your findings in an organized and easy to understand way. There is nothing wrong with doing an experiment that has already been done and making it your own. One interesting topic for a sixth grade science project is eggs. There are tons of experiments that can be done with eggs, such as why raw eggs do not spin as well as hard boiled eggs? Or, when you place an ordinary egg into a jar of water will it sink or float? Will adding salt or sugar change whether it sinks or floats? Building a container that the egg can be placed in that will protect it if you were to drop the container. This project is a little more advanced than the other, but just as much fun. You could also try a sixth grade science project on music vs. noise. Why do people enjoy listening to loud music, but get bothered by loud noise? Whats the difference? You could also go with the tried and true volcano project; however, this project should only be done if you have a genuine interest in volcanoes and other geothermal phenomenon, otherwise its just going to look like an easy out because it has been done so many times in the past.
Simple answer.as much as we are the same, we are different. And thats a really cool thing! If we can learn how to appreciate the differences and work with them instead of against them, we will much happier, more connected and more productive. We tie school policies into the conversation, set some expectations about limits and boundaries on behavior at school and help the kids identify their adult support systems for any questions or situations they may need help with. I sometimes get challenged by parents and teachers about covering this topic in mixed gender groups. My answer is always the same. Its important to begin healthy communication and understanding about gender differences early on in the process. Its a set up for healthy and effective communication and mutual respect over the life span. Another issue is the impact of technology on how and when kids are developing relationships today as well as the kinds of information they have available at their fingertips. This makes it even more necessary to teach skills and boundaries at this age.
If you know of any recently retired teachers, so long as theyre up to date with the latest teaching methods, then they make great tutors; they may also be grateful of the additional money that this gives them. Do you know are there any parents are looking for a math tutor? Can they recommend the tutor that they have? If they can, what sort of improvement have they seen in the grades of their children? Have you taken into consideration how close your new tutor lives to you? Can you imagine it; you have already got a math tutor, but the traffic is so congested and they have to arrive late; by the time they arrive at your place, its time to have your dinner or the kids are just exhausted and ready to go to bed; doesnt make too much sense to employ someone that far away now, does it? if the person just lives nearby, it is more easier for them to make alterations of when they come and coach your kids; it doesnt disrupt theyre routing too much, and it doesnt disrupt yours, either. In what ways you know youve selected the correct person?
Every year students and parents alike become involved in school science projects. From the simplest projects with only the most basic materials to highly complex experiments, all projects should be considered important to the education of the students. Generally speaking, students at the second grade level are not expected to produce projects with the sophistication that might be expected at the 6th grade or 7th grade, but all project content should be original in nature. While many parents are able to provide their students with costly materials to construct their projects, other parents do not have that capability. That may seem unfair, but it should also be noted that many projects can be constructed with low cost or even free materials. Some school districts have the capability to provide students with materials for their school science projects. If that option is not available, local businesses may be encouraged to participate by providing money or materials. The central idea should be that no student be denied the option of being involved because of financial concerns.
