A full KS3 scheme of work that contains six fully resourced lessons to allow your department to complete a Science Fair project. As a school we conducted this period for a two week cycle after half term to allow students to; produce an idea, write a hypothesis, plan a method, conduct an experiment of their choice and make their project.
Class winners were chosen and then allowed to present their work in the hall for the rest of the school to see. This is the third year we have completed our science fair at my school. This year we had four entries that won prizes at the big bang fair regional competition. One of which was chosen as the Young scientist of the year regional winner and will be presenting their project nationally later next year.
This pack contains:
Assembly PowerPoint: To present to the whole school introducing the fair.
Lesson 1: Producing an idea
Lesson 2: Forming a Method
Lesson 3: Pilot experiment
Lesson 4: Experimental time
Lesson 5: Conclusion and evaluation (making project)
Lesson 6: Choosing a winner
Lesson plans, resources and example project winners also included.
I hope, if you are willing for a bit of chaos, that you see the same enthusiasm and creativity in your students as I have.
