TAPE your eggs
shut if you are going to fill them... the glue did not
work! We used packing tape.
We used the pod
(hallway) for our egg roll. Trying to not waste paper, we
decided to mark off a 3" section with tape. We marked each
tile since each one is 12". The only downside to this was
that the eggs rolled F-A-S-T and F-A-R!
We had opposing
classes stand opposite each other. Next time, we will
have them sit. With all of the eggs-citement, sometimes
we missed where the egg exited the lane.
The teachers kept
the master sheet where the distances were recorded. It would be
better to have each student keep a list of all rolls. (Helps
keep them busy and focused.)
We started with
the first student in each class. Each student had two chances to
roll their egg. After they were finished, they went to the end
of the line and we moved on to the next person. We alternated
sides. The lines just kept moving forward.
Everyone had a
ruler in hand. If the egg stopped or rolled off in front of
them, they measured the distance. We did this in feet and inches
and then converted them to all inches once back in the classroom.
from Last Year
Each student was
given an egg to decorate.
They also had to write a bi-EGG-raphy
to go with their egg.
If we would have had more time,
it would have been nice to record them.
We had such a hard time
deciding who had to best egg
that we ended up
not sending one to Technospud -
we declared everyone a winner!
