WW: Science Fair {Linky}

The boy's school has a Science Fair every year. Only 4th grade and up have to participate, but they strongly encourage the other grades to join in. Our boys has done it every year.

This year Isaak did his on earth worms and Mica did his on the sugar inside different sodas.


We got books at the library for Isaak on Earthworms. He picked out the most important facts about them, and did drawings of them from his books. He also had a mini compost bin that had big earthworms, compost, and dirt in it.




With Mica we helped him boil different sodas down to see how much sugary crap is in them. Then we weighed the amount of cane sugar that was listed on each can. He tested 4 different kinds. Mountain Dew and Root Beer won for the most sugar. They all had a lot more than we thought in the. It's good we're not regular soda drinkers.



We went to the library, so Mica could type away what he wanted to type up, while we looked for worm books with Isaak.


Mica found out that he won 3rd place a few days before school was out. He was kind of sad about this because in the past he's won 1st place. I told him that his project was good. Other kids do a good job as well.

I was bummed because he didn't get a certificate at all. In with his report card we found out that Isaak won 1st place! I think it's based on grade level, so he didn't beat out his brother. He was so excited he was jumping up and down.

I agree! They did an awesome job. Congrats. to the boys. I wish they had done a science fair at my kids school. I saw a documentary about poor kids down south that drank Mt. Dew and their teeth rotted. Gross. Sad.
