School Science Projects

I always learned more in school from doing rather than from listening and taking notes. I think there are a lot of people who learn this way, and that is why there are a lot of teachers who like to take the hands on approach. Nothing can replace learning information from a textbook, but if you can find ways to demonstrate what is in that book, chances are good that more people are going to understand what is going on, and they are going to do it faster and more easily. One great example of this is school science projects. These were always fun, and we always had a science fair each year to show off what we learned. When it comes times for your child to do school science projects, you may be excited.

Finally, there is something fun to help your child with in regards to school. I donít know about you, but when it comes time to help my daughter with math, Iím not going to be any good at it. However, when she comes home and announces that she has school science projects due, I am going to be able to help her. Just donít go too far like some parents and do the project for them. They arenít going to learn this way, and the grade they may get for a project you did wonít feel good to them.

You can always tell when parents have done a childís school science projects for them. As a parent, you have to realize you arenít going to fool the teachers either. They have your child in their class all year long, and they are well aware of what you child can and cannot do. If your child struggles with the basics of science, but their school science projects blow everyone else away, the teacher is going to smell a rat, and rightfully so. They know your child cannot learn if they donít do it themselves. This doesnít mean you can help your child with their school science projects though. You can help them come up with an idea, and you may even help them build it, but you should leave the thought processes and the science to your child. Let them figure out how and why, so they have not only have fun; they have most definitely learned something they need to know. You can build volcanoes for school science projects, but if they arenít sure why the liquids are reacting and bubbling over the top, they really havenít learned anything. Unless you are the one earning the grades, leave that part to them.

You can help, just donít do, and donít let them try to talk you into it either. .
