We are learning to work together as a team and to solve problems creatively.


  1. It looks like you had a lot of fun as you problem solved in your groups. How many eggs survived the ordeal? I would have tried hard boiling mine first, if I could have! ;-)

  2. I almost forgot to tell you's how much time do we have to do ? .

  3. It was really fun to do this game ever , everyone love's playing this fun game.

  4. There was only two eggs that scurried and there was six groups.My groups egg was one of the eggs that scurried.There was only two techniques that the six groups used and that was a parachute and a long rope.My group was the only group that used the long rope technique and it managed.
