We participated in our first activity with a homeschool group. I entered the kids into a project fair and it was held this evening.
So, naturally, I waited till this past weekend to get the kids working on their project boards.
The rules of the project board – display any topic on a trifold board.
How awesome is that… Absolutely perfect for our unschooling approach.
Edison- 3 ways to make coffee (French press, Chemex, Keurig)
Edison handed out chocolate coffee beans to everyone that stopped by his display!
Simone – Little House on the Prairie
She learned how to make a yarn doll and even helped her brothers make their own.
She helped visitors to her booth make button necklaces.
Andre – 3 types of rocks
Andre had a pumice rock floating in water! Who knew a rock could float!
Eli absolutely LOVED making his display and he has proclaimed that he’s keeping it forever! He had many plastic dinosaurs on display and he showed everyone his rock with fossils that he found in the creek yesterday!
At the very end of the project fair, everyone got participation certificates…
… except Andre who will get his in the mail (a printer mishap).
The kids had so much fun designing and creating their open-ended projects!!!
