Forest Street Community School
2018- 2019 Science Fair
This year we are excited to explore and expose our students to the wonders of scientific investigations. All students in grades K-7 are required to participate in the schoolwide fair. The science fair projects are interdisciplinary and will utilize skills students have acquired in other subject areas. Teachers will prepare students with the information they need to begin their projects. These projects will serve as an authentic assessment grade and will be incorporated into the 4th marking period science grade.
Project Deadline: April 29, 2019 (3rd grade completed project and digital component for grades 4-7)
Project Display: Week of May 20th
Kindergarten through 2nd grade will make dioramas (a model representing a scene with three-dimensional figures) representing an animal or an animal habitat.
