YSaC, Vol. 571: Science!
Science Fair Project - M&M Math - $20
I have my daughter's 3rd grade science fair project that won third place in our small school. Could be used for any elementary grade. It comes complete with board and notebook. The board is covered in Brown fabric and is decorated with M&M packages and paper to look like M&M's. The notebook folder is yellow with M&M (paper) on the front and includes everything that is on the board. Purpose, Hypothesis, Materials List, Procedure, graph and Conclusion. It does not have my daughters name on it anywhere. It comes with everything except the box of M&M's that is in the picture. Please let me know if you have any questions.
I'm not quite sure of the direction to go here, but I'm pretty sure it involves righteous indignation. I just can't figure out what I'm feeling more righteously indignant about. Help me, won't you?
Seriously. If you're going to try to sell your kid's science fair project, it should have at least won first place. And it should involve lasers. Or robots. Or hamsters. Or robot hamsters with lasers. Some third graders are busily inventing the internet, and your kid is graphing the total number of M&Ms in a package? You must be very proud. And by proud, I mean slimy, since you're selling your own child's science fair project. But that's okay, because you probably did it for them, and you probably ARE proud that it won third place. Although, you're thinking that it would have placed higher if it hadn't been for that Jenkins kid, whose father is an engineer and built that robot hamster with lasers that took second place.
