Project Tips

Step 1

Choose a topic for your science project that interests you and look for books on that topic. It's also a great idea to look up information on the computer using Internet websites like those listed in this Homework Helper to gather information.

Step 2

Decide how you will organize your report. You may begin with a hypothesis or a question about your topic and answer your question through experimentation. Document your procedures, explain your results, and write your conclusions.

Step 3

Double check your assignment to make sure that you have followed all of your teacher's guidelines. This is very important! Much of your grade depends on simply following the assignment directions. Make changes as needed.

Step 4

Have a parent, or other adult, read your report and check for errors. You may also use spell-check on the computer before printing out the final copy. Turn it in on time to get the best grade!
