Students were encouraged to use images licensed for re-use and required to cite their sources. Creating the video provided an opportunity to practice and engage with their poems before presenting to the class. Congratulations to all students and teachers who participate in this exciting event.
The ASFG 2016 Science Fair will be held on Thursday, March 3rd, 2016 in the auditorium. Every year, teachers work hard to provide quality resources and guidance for students participating in the science fair. The purpose of the event is to serve as a springboard for students to be able to participate in highly recognized national and international science fairs. This year, the Science Fair website provides access to all the resources students need from links to research topics to a demonstration video for creating a great poster.
Through participating in the ASFG Science Fair, students practice important work and life skills such as time management, collaborative work, critical thinking, effective communication, interaction with peers, and citizenship. ASFG Science Fair involves open and guided inquiry, poster making, creation of effective figures and tables, referencing, experimental design, and ability to identify reliable sources of information.
