Kids often put off projects to the last minute, then want you to bail them out.
Teachers don’t want parents doing projects for students. That doesn’t help them learn. What will help is asking them the right questions. These include:
- Have you considered a variety of science topics?
- Is there sufficient research on your topic?
- Have you come up with a testable question?
- Have you decided who will do what and when, if you are working with a partner?
- Will you be able to finish the project by your deadline?
- How will you display your project?
- What materials will you need?
- Can you get and afford these materials?
- Have you figured out what you need to do?
- Have you put the steps in your planner?
- Have you given your project a catchy title?
- What help will you need from me? When?
