I am sorry to rant about school again, but I guess after every big project one of the kids completes, I HAVE to ask, WHAT IS THE SCHOOL THINKING?
Mikayla completed her science fair project, and I thought that she did a really good job.
But, in addition to the scince fair board, she also had to complete a research paper...which, when finished was 13 pages LONG! It included a title page, a table of contents, project information, a scientific research paper, a data table, a graph, and a bibliography. HOLY CRAP!
Is it just me? Or does this seem a little much for the 5th GRADE!
I just don't remember doing ANYTHING like this when I was that age...when did I even start to do stuff like this, maybe 9th grade?
She worked on her project for a month.
I am REALLY proud of her...but I am also worried about the future...I know that this is just the beginning! What am I going to do when she KNOWS more than I do, and I can no longer help her when she has questions about her homework?
At this rate, that might be next year!
