Egg Drop Challenge!
Due to an appointment last Thursday, Longfellow had GATE Wednesday the 18th and today, Thursday the 19th. Yesterday, we began our Egg Drop Challenge! Third grade did not have any restrictions on number of materials, they were allowed to use their creative minds to make whatever they thought would work. Not a single design was the same! Their materials were: tape, glue, plastic bags, straws, rubber bands, yarn, cardboard, cotton balls, paper plates, bathroom cups, punch cups, sponges, paper clips, and decorations for their creations! It was a challenge to come up with designs that would work, but the kids soldiered on! We will continue building today, pictures will be posted once they have finished building. We have a second building day today for students who need more time. Those that have finished will be doing an Escape the Box Challenge!
