Students choose their own topic for an inquiry science project. 

Afterwards, they shared their projects with the class then we had a huge display in the school. 

             

 

Do you want to teach the science inquiry process and then hold a Science Fair?   If so, you might want want to take a look at my fully editable science fair project materials on Teachers pay Teachers.  The set includes everything you need to teach the science inquiry process plus hold a science fair. 

The structure and all forms are already created for you. These materials are great for grades 3-8.  Forms are provided in MS Word and PDF formats so you can print and go or customize what you'd like.  There are 91 pages in all.

The project is set up as a month-long homework project to be done during mid-April to Mid-May 2013 (but, again, you can modify the dates if you’d like).

The student direction packet and student homework packets have calendar and week by week due dates plus all recording sheets needed by students.  Power Point slide show introduces the project to students.  Included is a sample guided science inquiry experiment with teacher notes and student handouts, science fair poster board templates for students who need a little extra help and to allow for differentiation, colorful wall posters teaching the steps of the scientific process, award certificates to honor the hard work and effort of EVERY child, memory book reflection pages, and more.
