Seven Steps for Preparing a Social Studies Fair Project.
McCue, Lydia L.
This student booklet outlines seven steps to aid elementary and secondary school students in participating in a social studies county fair. The first step is an understanding of the fair rules. Second, the student decides whether to work in a group or alone, after reading advantages and disadvantages of both approaches. Step three, choosing a topic, describes nine categories and topics within those categories. Students may choose from history, economics, political science, geography, anthropology, sociology, psychology, interdisciplinary, or special theme topics. The fourth step lists sources of information for the research portion of the project. Step five outlines the research steps: stating the question, collecting information, organizing and summarizing, stating conclusions, and stating the importance of conclusions. Steps six and seven concern constructing a display and preparing for judging. The judging consists of an oral presentation and a written abstract as well as a visual display. (KC)
