Well, Brendan did his experiment on "Disappearing Water" or as we adults call it - Evaporation! This happened to be a very fun experiment that we did during the course of our homeschool year and Brendan loved the final result of the experiment so he chose to do this.
Can I just say - this experiment and having my child judged was excruciating for me - Not Brendan, but me! Oh, we role played and practiced and the poor kid and to write and re-write his information until it was up-to-par! UGH! This was an exhausting process. Not that I needed him to win, but I just didn't want him freezing up with all the questions or feeling nervous.
Well, he did AWESOME! Brendan is in 1st grade this year - and he came in 2nd Place in the 1st & 2nd grade category! We were so proud. Actually, I could never be a judge - every project was a winner! In fact every student got a prize so that was great!!
