We all made predictions as to whether the shell would break or not.
We then observed most of the pupils participate in the test.
Had lots of fun reflecting on the outcome of the test.
We learned that though they are very light,eggs have strong shells. Mother nature has done a fantastic job protecting the vulnerable young growing inside the shells.
As a class we discussed the tough outer coatings that are found abundantly in nature. As in hermit crab
shells, the outer shell on horse chestnuts and tortoise shells to name but a few.
We also shared thoughts on how we as people need protective casings for parts of our bodies ....bicycle helmets.
