Last week, I shared a very cute and yummy math game, tiny teddieswhich focuses on counting and developing a one-to-one correspondence. Children learn best when presented with a variety of games that reinforce the same mathematical concept.
First the students need to think about their materials and how they are going to use them. The introduction and these beginning activities will take about 30 minutes. The next two 30 minute blocks of time are used by the students to construct their egg drop apparatuses.
Then we use the final 45 minute block of time to conduct the actual egg drops and analyze the results.
I will begin having students complete an analysis worksheet in addition to the analysis discussion that we have after each participant completes their egg drops. Once they cut their string, it is cut and they can't get a new piece of string. If student eggs survive the drop from the ceiling, I let them drop out the window.
If it survives the three story drop, I give that group extra credit. I want the students to use their analysis skills to discover the connection between design and performance. Assessment This activity is worth 50 points and broken into three components: The actual egg drop test is worth 30 points.
If the egg survives the student earns 30 points.
If the egg cracks or is broken it is worth 20 points. The analysis worksheet is worth 10 points. This is where the critical thinking and analysis skills will be assessed formally.
