Congrats to your son! What kind of science project was it - report, model, presentation? Would love to hear more about what he actually did to earn the A (Sorry, it is the former 6th grade teacher coming out in me - just curious).
Nancy

He is in the 4th grade and they were supposed to form a hypothesis and then try to support it. His hypothesis was that stablizers on ships keep people from getting seasick.
While on board we kept track of weather, wave height and whether or not the people in our party had to take bodine. We then did the poll online here and made charts etc. I took a great picture of the ship and blew it up to an 8 x 10 for the board. Because he did the project on board the principal counted the week out of school as excused.
Will have to come up with some other idea to get an excused absence next year. Kids don't know it but I have already scheduled a another week for next spring with them.(I prefer NOT being on there with 2000 other kids and to pick a less crowded kid week)

Wow! What a great idea. Sounds like a lot of thought and work went into the project. Maybe we should start a new thread and gather a list of other cruise related school projects that the kids can select from.

That would be great Nancy. I know all the parents would love it but so would the kids. My son got the biggest thrill out of checking this website to see if anyone else had responded to the poll and his teacher and prinicpal were very impressed he did it on vacation!
