A while ago, Joshua told us he wanted to be in the Science Fair. My original thought was, "Okay, what kind of work has to be done for this?" I don't know why I was worried about the amount of work and time that has to go into one of these things....it's not my work - anymore. After some research and discussion, Joshua chose his topic. He spent some nights performing his experiments, writing out and typing his findings, gluing pictures and captions on his presentation board and even making a video practicing his presentation.
The day of the fair finally arrived and he was as ready as he could ever be. I was so proud of him. He wasn't nervous. He was calm, cool and collected. And it showed! He presented to the judge "in private" (no parents allowed) and afterwards I was asked if he had ever done something like this before. I explained this was his first one and she said she was surprised at how well spoken and knowledgable he was on his subject.
Bring on the 3rd grade Science Fair! Joshua is ready!
