Expository Essay- Science Fair Project.(One page essay) Students are expected to explain the process of a Science Fair Project, as published in Teaching ESOL Through Science Fair Experiments, by Judie Haynes.

StructureExpository Essay, published on student’s weblog (including all prewriting).

ProcedureStudents log on to class weblog/ formative page and download the following files: EXPOSITORY SCIENCE FORMATIVE SCIENCE PROJECT

The EXPOSITORY SCIENCE FORMATIVE file should be immediately published onto the student’s weblog. The above files contain all the information needed to complete this exercise.

Students’ production
By Wednesday 8th December, 2010, students will have completed their work. Students are required to publish updates of their file, progressively.
Teacher will then comment on individual student’s 9. PUBLISHED WORK- ORIGINAL and email it to them for pasting to the final page of their file;11.PUBLISHED WORK - TEACHER’S COMMENTS

Objectives
Students will display knowledge of the elements of an Expository Essay by explaining the process, in logical order, for a science fair experiment.

PROJECT EXAMPLE
Will it Sink or Float?
Question
Is it Possible to Float a Paper Clip on Water?
Hypothesis
My hypothesis is that the paper clip will float because the surface of the water has surface tension. Materials
I used clean, dry paper clips,
Tissue paper, a bowl of water, and pencil with eraser.
Variables
The variables in my experiment are the amount of water in each bottle and the size and shape of the bottles.
Procedure
Fill the bowl with water
Rip a piece of tissue paper and put it on the water
Place a paper clip on the tissue paper
Use the erasers end carefully to sink the tissue paper
Results
The paperclip floats on the water, but even a little movement could sink the clip. Conclusion
The paper clip floats because of surface tension. Water molecules have bonds that hold them together - they attract each other. They form an invisible type of skin on the water surface that is called surface tension.
