Preparing for Operation: Egg Drop and More!

It's egg-ceptional news from Cannan this week! Fifth grade students, under the direction of Mrs. Young, are bringing in their prepared egg holders to be dropped during Science Club! The idea has been to create a shell or carrier that can then be dropped in order to test whether it was successful in cushioning the egg's fall! It is the basics of gravity and inertia demonstrated through something as simple as an egg. From balloon arrays to modified footballs, students have brought many wonderful ideas to test in this eggs-periment!
 
And in other news this week, students are memorizing songs throughout the grade levels for our upcoming sing-a-long, and fourth grade students are getting into the swing of practice for their holiday program! It is shaping up to be a great start to the last few weeks of 2017!
