We were literally down to the wire before the science project reached its shocking conclusion!
In case you ever need to complete a Grade 5 science assignment – I present to you (no charge)
Simple Circuits for Grade 5 Science
Electo Math – has 8 questions and 8 answers glued onto the presentation board:
Close-up view – there are brass fasteners placed at the end of each question and beginning of each answer:
Here is the simple circuit using two 6-volt flashlights (would you believe it if I told you that we bought the last two 6-volt flashlights in town? Believe it. I was almost to the point of having someone FedEx us some flashlights. Seriously.)
We placed everything in a simple white box – so it would be a look less re-volt-ing during the presentation.
In action – correctly answer the question and the board lights up 🙂
Behind the scenes – the snarl of wires:
Tonight our school board made the decision NOT to shorten our school week to 4-day (Monday to Thursday) week but keep it at the current 4.5 day schedule. I am very pleased about this decision – a shorter school week would mean more of these type projects on top of everything else.
This project is due tomorrow complete with a report and schematic drawing. On Thursday, the King Tut report and PowerPoint presentation is due. Is this a crazy amount of homework? What happens to the poor kid who doesn’t have the resources and/or parental time in order to shop, plan, create, and complete these huge projects?
I’m getting all amped up.
I’ll pull the plug on this rant and step off the lecture circuit.
