CollingdaleChristian Family School
814 Andrews Avenue
A fun time for homeschooled children to showcase their knowledge of a geographical region or era in history without the pressure of being judged for their work. Also an easy way to teach children presentation skills in an area they are enthused and excited about.
All participants will receive a participation certificate, and students traveling through the exhibits will receive passports.
SET UP: 9:15 a.m.
FAIR OPENS: 10:00 a.m.
FAIR ENDS: 11:30 a.m.
CLEAN UP: must be done by noon.
Full 2.5' x 6' table or half that. Tables will be provided. Tables will need to be covered with a cloth.
To stand in the back of your exhibit, labeled with the title of your exhibit. (geographical region or historical period)
ALSO ON TABLE OR TRI-FOLD BOARD:
Anything else you decide to display; pictures, charts, fact pages; can go here, as well as on the table. A map of your region is also good for display.
RUBBER STAMP AND INK PAD or STICKERS:
To mark in each student's "passport" as he/she visits your exhibit. The stamp should have something to do with the region/era you're presenting. For example: an eagle to represent the United States, the Irish flag for Ireland, etc.
You may provide samples to represent your region/era, but this is not necessary. Example: Goldfish crackers for presentation of Japan. Keep it small and simple.
OTHER DISPLAY IDEAS:
You may hang things from ceiling tiles, play music, do cultural dances, dressing up in costume is recommended but not required. Doll, models, charts, books, artwork, are all good ideas!
Someone must be at the exhibit at all times!
A parent, sibling or friend who has worked on the project.
Know your material and be ready to explain what your visitors are seeing.
