First Science Fair Project

Wow, the science fair is A LOT of work!!!  No matter how much of it you make your child do on their own, you are still wrangled in to doing a ton to help.

Jade’s first science fair project is on balance and how our sense affect it.  For her project she had to write a 1-2 page research paper and guess what, there is not a ton of information out there about her topic.  I guess I shouldn’t be that surprised.  Most of what is out there about balance has to do with the inner ear and how your vestibular system helps you balance.

To test Jade’s theory that seeing and hearing affects your balance, we had 7 dancers (including Jade and Ivy) test it out.  We timed them balancing in posse 5 different ways.  The first was the neutral test where they could see and hear.  Then we eliminated their hearing.  Then we eliminated their sight.  Next we had them blindfolded and with their ears plugged.  And finally we had them spinning with their eyes covered and their ears plugged.  It was fun to watch these girls who are generally pretty good balancers topple over with giggles.

Balance

Now she’s got a lot of work to do to create her board with photos, times and her conclusion.  She’s not even going to compete with hers and it is still a ton of work!!

How on earth do moms with more than two kids manage all of the school projects and assignments?
