I mentioned that the age range was from first through eleventh grade which could have made things difficult. But amazingly it wasn't difficult at all. The older students made their projects high school level and also young student friendly. The high school aged students were very happy to help the younger students and showed interest in their projects as well. Each project had a display board with the pertinent information about their topic, plus either a hands on experiment to try or a presentation to watch. As they visited each table they had booklets with questions that they had to find the answers to on each of the boards. In closing, each student received a certificate of achievement and a ribbon and then we all enjoyed dessert.
Have your children participated in any homeschool fairs? If so I'd love to hear about it.
