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!!
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!
If your classroom/group/etc decided to FILL the eggs, you will have an area on the tally sheet to submit that information as well. Your eggs should all be filled with the same substance please!!
The posting of results will be available on the webpage from March
24 to April 19, 2008. The result page will be updated on March 29,
April 12, & 20.
(Jennifer will be in WI for a conference during the week of April
When teachers submit results, they will be provided with a link
to pick up their certificate of participation.
