Eggcellent learning

Children and mess. I don’t know about you, but these two things go together, to my mind, like peas and carrots (Thanks Forrest). So when I spied these ideas for lessons which involve dropping eggs, I just knew that they would be winners when it came to the kids involved. I don’t mind a bit of messy fun either, so if you’re game, check out these ideas for investigating: ways to use different materials to protect the egg, using different containers for protection, using forces (try a parachute?) to slow the egg’s fall or cushioning the fall of the eggs with appropriate materials. Whatever you choose to do, the links to the Australian Curriculum: Technologies are evident. Check out my Pinterest board for relevant descriptors from the Australian Curriculum, and for other teaching ideas.
