Develop a Working Model

Postby awsings » Mon Dec 10, 2012 3:11 pm

My daughter is 8 years old and has chosen to develop a working model of "something". She is very interested in animals, especially dogs and horses.
What are some ideas for a topic of research?

Hi awsings,

I also recommend you to first use the Science Buddies search engine for potential ideas for your daughter's project.

Some examples of project ideas related to animals might be...
- Life cycle of a frog
- Sleep pattern of various animals
- Best baits for catching fish
- What makes a spider web sticky
- Social interactions among animals

Hope this helps!
