Science Fair Update

Over the winter break students should have been completing the science fair experiment. It is a good idea to take photographs and record the results in the Science Fair Journal.

This is a good time to buy a science fair Tri-Fold Board. You can purchase one at Michael's, Hobby Lobby, Target, Office Depot, and Wal Mart. Any color is acceptable.

'Results' are due on Friday, January 3.

Results In a Table: Tell what happened in your experiment, create a table to show the results. A table can be made in Microsoft Word. To to 'Table' on the tool bar and select 'Insert' then 'Table.' Enter the number of columns and rows needed. Then enter the headings and data. Save it and print.
