The science fair projects at Brightsville School have disappeared and it’s up to your students to solve the mystery. Groups complete activities to earn clues, while individual team members complete Investigations to learn about places the projects could be hidden. Students learn how to conduct experiments using the scientific method, record data in science fair notebooks and create graphs and display boards. After learning how to make a project a success, students have the chance to evaluate several projects in the role of Science Fair Judge. An optional whole-class science fair project and suggestions for organizing a science fair are included. Up to 19 hours of instruction. Grades 4–8. Interact.
