Regardless of the topic, I recommend having your children do a combination of project board, research paper, and physical component. The physical component can be an experiment, a physical model, even a game to teach the concept studied.
Science Fairs & Projects Fairs Are Perfect For All Grades, Subjects, & Curriculum
The very best thing about science fairs and project fairs is that they’re absolutely perfect for ALL grades and ages! As a mom of 4 kids I absolutely love that we can work on a project like this that’s so adaptable to each kid’s level.
Your youngest kids can do a one page paper or a simple list. Or they can use my FREE My First Report Printable For Beginning Writers or my FREE 1st Grade Research Paper Writing Template. You can work with them and print out symbols and items for them to color and put on their project board. You can use play dough, stickers – all the fun craft supplies – to allow them to create a presentation with materials they’re familiar with.
The research portion of the project fair can be anything that’s at your child’s level – even a list of terms like this one.
Meanwhile, your older kids can work on their papers and projects at their grade level. You set the requirements for them and see what they create! It’s so fun to watch them grow through this process and see how much they learn.
Whether you’re a scheduled, type A homeschool, unit-study loving family, or an eclectic do-what-you-want type of teacher, there’s a place for project fairs in every homeschool.
