My Honey bunny is a big 5th grader now and as such was required to do a 3D model of the structure of a cell, either plant or animal, depending on their preference. She chose all the materials, how she was going to construct it, and labeled all the parts herself.
It is VERY easy to jump in and start telling the kids how to do a project of this nature (or any project, really). The trick is keeping yourself outta the equation. I had to remind myself that this wasn’t MY project, it wasn’t MY grade, I could NOT take over & do the whole thing the way I wanted to. No matter how badly I wanted to do that very thing.
In addition to this model, they had to do a report, and the obligatory speech. She got an A for the project. YAY Honey bunny! Even without any interference from me or the husband.
Thanks for listening (or reading, if you must be technical),
