4th Grade Egg Drop

For as long as we have lived here (approaching nine years, can you believe it!) Mountain Shadows has had their annual 4th grade egg drop. Basically the students need to design a vessel that will protect an uncooked egg when thrown off of the school's roof. Tim used some heavy duty eggshell foam, then put it in a shoebox, then wrapped it with tape. As you can see, he is upset that I am taking his picture, again!

Here is his class waiting for their turn

Loading them up.

Ready for launch!

Tim's egg survived!!
Tons of fun! If I remember correctly, Alex and Brendon's eggs survived. So....on to Topher!

That's awesome! I remember doing that, but not until highschool. He is way ahead of me :) Good job!

I remember doing that. My egg broke though. I didn't do a good job.

Cheryl, don't feel bad, most of the eggs didn't survive. It is harder than most people think!

You are so sweet, Jaylene! Thank you for all your sweet posts. You made sure to comment on each one. Thank you for that! I've been so busy lately that I just did a lot of them yesterday - my house went to crap and I got nothing done, but I did blog!

One thing I have learned is that the house ALWAYS needs to be cleaned no matter what, but you will have the scrapbook, blogposts, to remind you of those cuties the rest of your life! p.s. u r a qt 2!
