Science project Plants

Postby gvhernandez » Tue Dec 04, 2007 7:52 pm

My daughter volunteered her grandfather to write up a science project experiment for her class. She is in 2nd grade and her grandfather is a botanist. He really wants to help, but he is having a hard time writing up the experiment so that a 2nd grader will understand. The project idea has to do with growing plants under different variables. For example, plain water, water with a small amount of salt and one with a large amount of salt. Please help us with a format and any other ideas you may have with this idea.

The best place to start is going to be our Project Idea writing guide. The guide was designed for volunteers who author our Project Ideas and it includes a template for writing a Project Idea and has information about education standards at the various grade levels which will help him format the writing for a 2nd grade reader.

We are always looking for new Project Ideas for our website and if her Grandfather is willing to work with Science Buddies we could help him create the Project Idea and then publish it on the Science Buddies website once it's complete.

The Guide and Template information can be found at http://www.sciencebuddies.org/mentoring/participate_starter_kit.shtml

Please email scibuddy@sciencebuddies.org if you or he is interested in working with Science Buddies staff to create the project idea. We are happy to help edit it so that it will work for the 2nd grade level and we have a staff scientist who is available for help and ideas.

I would agree with Melissa.
If you do as she says, you should have any problems.
