The Goates Family Project Fair

Last week, each member of our family received this in our e-mail inboxes. A challenge from our 11-year-old:

Welcome to the first ever Goates Family Project Fair!

Your goal is to create a project based on anything, as long as it goes under the theme. There will also be specific guidelines you must follow. Here is a list of all the information you will need to get started.

Theme: Dinosaurs
  • If your project is a poem, it must have a research page, an illustration, or a trivia, or be a booklet of poems.
  • Science projects must have a research page.
  • No project can be done together with two Goates, with the exception of Reuben.
  • Projects must take plenty of time and effort.
  • Name must be printed neatly on project;either in an inconspicuous place or in small print in a corner. Names may also be written in a small print byline.
  • December 20th- type of project
  • January 20th- topic
  • February20th- outline
  • March 20th- full project

If you reply to this e-mail, please make sure it is sent to each receiver of this message, not just to me.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask them!

We're organizers, the Goates girls...

Hmmm...I'm currently thinking of a cloth book of dinosaur poetry. Haikus are usually my go-to format, but I'm quite the impromptu lyricist these days, so I might get more ambitious (read: crazier verse).

I was laughing at this. I can just imagine the planning and thought that went into it. Have fun learning about dinosaurs!

Wow! I can't even pull together that detailed a project. Have a great time writing. Ooh, I just found a cute cloth book of colors...I'll email it to you if you like. Though with your made skills yours will awesome.
