They did it! They actually completed their joint History Fair project for school and turned it in! I can not believe the tears and procrastination that went into this project.
I volunteered to help judge. It gave me a head-ache. There were a lot of projects that were done last minute. Then there were some that stood out and were above the rest. Those were a delight to read and interview the kids. They were prepared and intelligent kids.
This project could have been great but it only went so far then and fizzled. The projects that were the best took the topic all the way and from many different angles so history was covered completely. Next year we know what to do and it will be a website not a board exhibit. Piece of cake if we don't leave it to the last second! And it better be something you are passionate about or you won't make it to the end.
