That's "Eggs"actly Our Point!

5th Graders have been working hard to uncover some big ideas! We now know what happens when you simultaneously drop two items of different masses from the same height.  Not only do we know the results, but we know the science behind it! Students have also applied their knowledge from the gravity drop tests and from our earlier seed dispersal creations to creating our most recent egg drop structures. Congratulations to all the groups that were able to design a structure that kept their egg from cracking! Way to put your understanding of surface area and air resistance into practice! If you want to dive deeper into this understanding - check out the link on the side titled "elephant vs. feather" and write me a paragraph about what you've learned to earn a mystery microscope slip.
