After the Lab - Science Fair Tie In

Once labs are finished I have students put all the information on a "mini" science fair board that gets glued into the book. All our elementary and middle school students are required to participate in our science fair (from fourth grade up) and I was trying to show them how easy it is to do.
I used the Dinah Zike shutterfold foldable and had students put information generally required for a science board on the foldable from the experiment. I wasn't able to get all the required information in but enough to show students that science fair projects didn't have to be overwhelming.
Students love anything miniature so I never got any fussing when they had to complete their boards.
