An ASE SYCD: Science Year Primary resource which provides almost everything you need to help you run an exciting and successful science fair in your school.
Themes include Living It Up, Magic Materials, Fabulous Forces, Superb Sound, Lovely Light and Excellent Electricity.
Lots of advice on how to plan and organise a science fair. The text takes anyone thinking of planning an event through the process of determining aims and objectives to make sure you REALLY want to do it! There are suggestions on how to involve colleagues and how to time the event. Sample letters to parents, newspapers and local industry help you to get support and sponsorship. There are forty themed activity cards for children from ages 3-11, which can be printed out. The activity cards are grouped below according to age range, but each one is also assigned to one of the themes. The cards usually have a key question to start the activity and further comments, guidance and questions to help the children work through the activities. Each activity is designed to be a bit different from the usual classroom science lessons. No specialist equipment is required. To go with each activity card are Teacher's Notes outlining:
*The intended age range and theme.
*The objectives and resources needed.
*Notes on how to manage the activity.
*Key questions to help you develop the activity.
*Suggestions of how the resultant learning could be recorded.
