But, let's be honest - the science fair is a TON of extra work.
Here are some resources that may help you as you get your own kiddos ready for the science fair:
#1 - I love this FREE Science Fair Handbook I found on TpT.
#2 - These beautiful scientific method signs were made by the fabulous Kristen from Ladybug's Teacher Files. LOVE THEM!
#3 - I great visual to walk students through the steps involved in a science fair project. (I espcecially like how it emphasizes the fact that some times we have to try again.)
#4 - Discovery Education offers Science Fair Central, a fabulous resource for teachers, parents and students!
#5 - Education.com has thousands of Science Fair Project Ideas.
#6 - A good article on the Scientific Process from Fact Monster.
#7 - YouTube - Two songs that teach about the scientific method through music. The first one is a rap and the second one is a sing-a-long.
Know of an awesome website or resouce that I'm leaving out? Make sure to leave a link in the comments so we can all add it to our science fair files! Thanks!!
