They had to include the author, illustrator (if applicable), publisher, author biography, and story summary. They created all of this on their own, and they turned out pretty darn cool!
This is what the crazy, filled up room looked like with science fair boards all over the place!
Here are a couple of the boards that I thought were particularly well done! These kiddos had some pretty clever science experiment ideas! Some looked at detergent and what worked better, others determined the melting point of chocolate (YUMMY!), one student looked at which flavor of bubble gum lasts the longest, and the list goes on and on…
