7/9 - Wednesday - The Great Egg Drop

No, we're not talking about Egg Drop soup, The Great Egg Drop is an activity the kids did today where they attempted to make a container that would protect an ordinary chicken egg from breaking when dropped from a various heights.

The students were given the following materials:
  • Plastic Straws
  • Paper Towels
  • Rubberbands
  • Paperclips
The class divided into 3 teams but only 1 team emerged victorious!

The winners were Jen and Valentina, who's egg, Junior Jerri, came away unscathed after not only a step-ladder drop but even a 2-story roof drop!

The egg drop was really cool!
My group tried to make a pillow underneath the egg. It didn't work AT ALL! Eggbert died hard!

Rest in Peace Eggbert!

This egg drop taught us about teamwork.
It was sad when our egg died though ]]'=
I enjoyed how we skipped typing.
