Why Are We Doing a Bible Fair?

This is part of a new four-year rotation of academic fairs for grades 5-8 that will allow our students to showcase the wide variety of God-given knowledge and abilities they are developing.  The four-year rotation is: Art Fair, Bible Fair, Science Fair, and Social Studies Fair.  

 

Important Dates/Notes

  • The entry form is due by Friday, October 27, 2017.  The project idea must be approved by the classroom teacher.   No changes will be allowed after Friday, January 12, 2018.
  • Completed projects are due Monday, January 29, 2018, at 8:15 AM.
  • Monday, January 29 - Wednesday, January 31: Student Presentation of Project to Classroom Teacher   As part of the judging and scoring of each project, each student will have the opportunity to demonstrate what they have learned as they present their project to their teacher. 

 

  • The Apostles Bible Fair will be held at school on February 2, 2018 in conjunction with the International Food Festival from 6-8 PM.
  • All deadlines not met will result in a loss of points.  This project is worth 25% of the Christ Light grade for the third quarter.

 

What Projects Can I Do?

The Bible offers many fascinating topics for further study.  Your child will be able to choose from three categories: 1) a Biblical Map, 2) a Biblical Model, or 3) performing a Living History of a Biblical Character.  Many questions will be answered by reading the Bible Fair Guidelines document you have been given, so please refer to that document for more detailed information regarding these choices.   If you have further questions after reading it, please ask your child’s teacher or a member of the Bible Fair Committee.

Parental Help—Do’s and Don’ts  

This is your child’s project and the teachers hope to see work that looks like it was done by your child and reflects his or her best effort.   This is also a large project that should be started well in advance of the due dates.  Many children will need parental encouragement to stay aware of the due dates and the parameters of the project. Help your child to choose a project that he or she is able to do primarily without your assistance.  Parents can be very helpful in ways such as proofreading any written portions for your child so they don’t miss “easy” points such as a having a title for the project.  Parental help may also be needed if a small portion of the project requires use of a tool the child may not be able to safely operate—such as a table saw.  Your child will be asked to document the ways in which parental help was utilized.  This should be a small percentage of the overall work necessary to complete the project.  Please consult with someone on the Bible Fair committee if you have any questions.
