E-book, Lesson Plan

Description:

Students in the class will demonstrate their knowledge and practical application of the Scientific Method by developing a science experiment for the Virtual Science Fair. All of the projects will be submitted online just as they would at a regular science fair. Students will work in pairs to find an answer to a question that has been approved by the teacher. They will use whatever technology they need to document the process. The documentation will be displayed on the Virtual Science Fair website for classmates and the judges to see.
