project began on March 18th, 2003 and concluded on April 11th,
You will need 1 (or 2**) hard-boiled eggs per student which will need to be decorated (either at home or at school) Please do not decorate with any sequins, stickers, crayons, or any other substance that will impede the rolling process.
You will need a measuring tool to measure at least 20 feet (marked off by inches). It is helpful to use a long roll of butcher paper to mark out your length.
PLEASE be sure to use standard width butcher paper (3' wide) -- color is up to you. <grins>
Please make sure that the area you will be rolling on is straight and flat. No downhill slopes allowed. :)
You will need something to identify the distance each egg rolled such as a stickynote or a marker.
Each student will
roll (not throw) their egg down the butcher paper or designated
marked area. Where the egg stops (or leaves the butcher paper)
is where you will mark distance. This is a NORMAL roll and NOT
a throw. (the arm needs to swing back NATURALLY (shoulder height)
and swing forward in a normal swing. When they release it, it
should ROLL as if they were bowling.)
Record the longest
boy roll & girl roll of your class!
Have your students
(or parents/principal/other guests) vote for the favorite egg,
take a picture, and send that picture to me.
At the end of the project -- a panel of "Egg-sperts" will vote for the "egg"ceptional egg in each category!!
Each winner will receive an "Egg-stra" special surprise.
(To make this fair -- because of different age groups -- we will have 4 categories for the Fashion Show. The categories will be PK through 2nd grade, 3rd through 5th, 6th through 8th, and 9th through 12th.)
The PK through 2nd
grade MAY have parental help!! However, remind your parents
this is NOT their project. Any eggs that do not seem age appropriate
will not be allowed in the Fashion Show!!
