Egg Drop

This Egg Drop lesson plan also includes:

How do different shapes affect the outcome associated with hard impact? All you need is an egg and some recycled materials to find out. Kids experiment to understand how airbags work to lessen the impact of two different types of collision. Pretend the egg is your head, and the vehicle the children construct is your car; then predict the likelihood of survival as you (the egg) plummets from various heights and various speeds. That's the task, and this resource is the guide. Along with the great set of instructions are three key equations to help your class see the relationship between math and physical science.
