Science Fair Projects
At this point, students should be collecting the results from their science fair experiments. We are halfway through our science fair project timeline. Please be sure your student stays caught up with their project! All science fair projects will be on display at Intermediate Celebration Night on April 27th along with each student’s Young Authors book and projects from the Walk-Through.
REMINDER: students should be collecting the materials they need for their covers. Students may make a fabric cover or a cardstock Here is a description of what your student needs to bring in if they are making a fabric cover so that they can bind their book:
2 pieces of cardboard or foam board (called foamies-soft/flexible):
8 ½ X 11 or 9 x 12 size, at least 6mm or ¼ inch thick, thin foam will not work
½ yard of cotton fabric (the 18 x 21 inch fabric squares are big enough):
Please no fuzzy fabric, felt, or fabric with holes, it will not stick to the glue
