The focus of this unit will be on the Sun and Earth. Hopefully the material that is offered will be used to help students complete a Science Fair Project. My main objective is to provide basic information on various topics enabling the student to decide which area he/she would like to investigate to complete a meaningful Science Fair Project. Once a topic has been identified, the first step, if possible is to get the student a mentor. It has been proven that the one-to-one nature of this process results in a better project. If one cannot find a mentor, your guidance and suggestions, to the student(s), will be critical to the Science Fair process and the completion of a quality project.
We do not need to reinvent the wheel, there are many well-developed activities for us to use. This unit will give you some suggestions on where find useful hands-on activities.
