Share Fair Week 4!

Written By Michal B. Whittaker and Althea R. Jackson

It’s the final week of Share Fair and we’re going out with a bang! {theoretically of course 😉} This week’s categories are Science and Social Studies. Aside from having to create a visual piece and write a report, students also had to express their knowledge in an interview with their judges. The judge’s critiques are based on the flow of the backdrop, the visual element, their written report, and their confidence in their topic. The science kiddos were also judged on the scientific method if applicable.

Focusing on a variety of categories each week, students create projects and submit them for judging. Each category has its own rules and regulations. In addition to the wonderful judges, everyone gets to cast their vote for their favorite entry and we call it the People’s Choice. Week 1 focused on the following Potpourri Categories:

Lego, K’nex, Model & Tinkertoy Building

Each project in this category was evaluated based on difficulty level, originality, creativity, and construction.
