Please read all directions carefully.
In the past we have conducted this project with hardboiled eggs --
but due to the waste of food and also the mess involved............
we will be using 2" PLASTIC EGGS!!
(Oriental Trading has 144 for $8 - this is just an option!)
Each "roller" will roll 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.
It is to be 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 it was a bowling ball.)
Students will roll against each student in your chosen classroom/group/team.
Teachers (or designated person/student) will mark down the measured roll per person in INCHES. Each tally sheet will have a column for the student rollers.
Teachers (or designated person/student) will then add and average the
rolls of all rollers. When submitting the results -- you will submit the classroom's
average. Please remember to list this in INCHES.
(if you submit your date incorrectly, it will not be placed into the final results!)
If you need a convertor from feet to inches, please click HERE!
You will have an area on the tally sheet to share what ingredient you used to fill your eggs.
The posting of results will be available on the webpage
from March 27 to April 14, 2008. Check back often for posted results.
When teachers submit results, they will be provided with a link to pick up their certificate of participation.
If classrooms wish to participate in the fashion show,
please check the fashion show page for more details.
