Here's one that received praise from two other parents (see comments section)...

States of Matter in a Baggie

And here are some other grade-appropriate ideas as well:

Magnets & Heat

Decaying Food (my daughter really liked this one)

Saving Hot Water

Whatever you choose, though, be sure that the project meets the requirements of your school's fair. Also, if you're not already familiar with the scientific method, you could read this article to better help your child with his/her project:

Good luck, have fun and I hope your child enjoys the learning!
