5th Grade Science Fair!

Well, this is my third time through the 5th grade. I honestly don't remember much from the first time. A few years ago, through my daughter, was the second time....alas, if all goes well, my son will be the third and final time.

I need to work with my son on my our his Science Fair project. I tried to get the teacher (through my son's persuasion) to let us him recycle present the project I my daughter made a few years earlier. No such luck.

This year, it's a Mousetrap Car! Energy, motion, blah, blah, blah... Here is an example of what we will be working on



It is 100% my son! Wheels, cars, movement. He will be answering the question "Will a larger mousetrap power a car further than a smaller mousetrap?". If by some miracle you can't figure out the answer to that question...stay tuned, and I will let you know how the trials go... After we build them, of course.

What grade are you in?

Seriously though, book reports with my oldest almost killed me in 5th grade.

I haven't been through a science fair yet, but I'm actually kind of looking forward to it...that is if my son does all of the work :)

What the? I don't remember science fairs being this sophisticated. I'm not looking forward to doing homework again. We're just singing songs and dancing around right now. When it comes to actual work I'm sure I'll be pulling my hair out.

And I thought getting ready for the 100 day party at Pre-K was a lot of work. More to look forward to I guess.
