Putting Science into Elementary Science Fairs.
Russell, Helen Ross
In a world where science has become too confined to books and too reliant on technology, and science fairs have been taken over by parents, this paper offers suggestions to help young people have actual hands-on experience with nature. Topics include soil formation; ants; earthworms; temperature; weather predictions; rain acidity; physical science (sound, light, heat); animal tracks; potato stamps; snow; gardens; compost; invertebrates; squirrels; pigeons; bird feeders; bird houses; bird watching; trees; and herbariums. Suggestions are given for adapting the activities to different age levels and to group activities. (SAS)
