After lessons on gravity, second grade students participated in an Egg Drop where they designed devices to prevent an egg from breaking when dropped from the roof of the school.  As Humpty Dumpty Hales sat on the wall dropping the eggs over easy for a great fall, students cheered their egg on to live another day or hoping the king’s men could put it back together again.  Some eggs were packed with cushions and some glided to the pavement with a parachute, while others would simply never see a frying pan.  It was definitely a sunny-side up day for second grade!
