The snow once again has graced us with its presence. I do love the snow. However, it makes lesson planning interesting. The homework listed on this guide will not be due this Friday. It will be due next Friday, March 14th.
Speaking of March 14th, we will be going on a fieldtrip to Imagination Stage that day. Permission forms have been collected and some parents have mentioned they would like to chaperone. We only have space for 2 chaperones. If you are still available to attend and would like to be placed in the lottery to be one of our two chaperones, please email me. I will literally write your name down and have one of the students draw two names this Friday, March 7th. This will give me plenty of time to contact our chaperones so that they may make arrangements.

Please complete this project by Friday, March 28th. This day will be our “Eggstra Special Egg Drop Day”. We will do “Eggspecially Eggcellent Eggtivities”. The day includes creating and following a recipe to make egg drop soup, egg relay races, an egg toss, and the ever popular egg drop contest.
Here’s the skinny on “The Egg Drop Project”…
The egg drop is a classic science project that kids love. Can you design a system (container) that will protect an egg from a fall? Every MMC student will give it a try and find out.
Use items from around the house to build something that will prevent eggs smashing all over the sidewalk as Mr. Morgan drops it off of the school’s roof.
Can you protect a falling egg?
What you'll need:
Build your egg protectors from resources such as:
You need to create something that can absorb the energy the egg gathers as it accelerates towards the ground. A hard surface will crack the egg so you have to think carefully about how you can
