Fifth Grade Science Projects and Fair
Our fifth grade students are preparing spectacular science projects as part of fifth grade science expectations. Fifth grade teachers are sharing specific expectations, ideas, methods, and procedures to help the students begin their projects. We are judging the students science projects, and we will be proudly displaying them for your enjoyment. Our top projects will quality for the Yuma County Science Festival in late April or early May. We posted handouts for the science project under the Parents tab on this page and encourage parents to review the procedures and expectations. We are judging the projects on Tuesday, March 25 in the morning, and we will have them available for public viewing on Wednesday, March 26. Please plan to come by and see all the wonderful projects.
