Our homeschool co-op had our academic fair this weekend, and it was wonderful! All three of my kids were excited to put projects together. They all picked science projects (surprise, surprise!)
Ds#1 still had a clam specimen left after I finished the dissection class for co-op, so he built a project around that. It's in a bag sitting on a dissection pan in front of the display. The lapbook was one he made in co-op last year based on Pagoo by Holling C. Holling.
Ds#2 did his project on volcanoes, immediately going to work drawing the graphics for his display. We had multiple books for him to get information, several of which he put on display. He really wanted to create a model volcano and have it erupt at the fair, but I didn't think we'd be able to do that in the building.
Ds#3, as soon as he heard his brothers were doing projects, insisted to me that he do a project on plants. He learned the 4 parts of a plant and the 4 things plants need to live and grow. While I printed out graphics for his display, he made the clay flower and labeled it with just a little help from Dad.
Below is a slide show of the whole fair. Only five families participated but most of us had multiple kids with projects. What was really wonderful was all the family that came through to see what their grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and cousins put together.
