Immersion: Discovery with Mrs Nua

Our last rotation was discovery with Mrs Nua. We first did an acrostic poem for discovery. Afterwards we had a competition to see who could create a shield or a barrier to protect an egg from cracking, when dropping it from 1 metre high. As we planned and got ready for our final design, we all started our experiment. We were given an egg, several straws, popsicle sticks, rubber bands and measuring tape. Our groups were in three’s and I was with Sela and Kezia. We placed out the newspaper and each group made their way outside to start.

Our final results didn’t turn out so good. Apparently our egg cracked, but it was very cool though. The winner was Casey and Tanielu. So what I learned from discovery was whether we could find out if our experiment worked or not. It was such a lot of fun.
