You may have gotten excited when you saw the phrase “egg drop” again. No, we aren’t tossing eggs off the deck today. We are doing something that’s really cool. Again, almost cool enough to be a magic trick, but you and I know it’s science 🙂 Before we get started, we are going to do a little review about the laws of motion, gravity, and inertia. Because while your family will be impressed that you can do this “magic trick”, they’ll be more impressed if you can actually explain how you did it.

Newton’s first law of Motion– Primary & Intermediate (K-5)

Now is your chance to use Newton’s 1st Law of Motion (and inertia) to do a pretty cook trick. Materials: egg, large glass filled with water, a paper plate (or disposable aluminum pan), a toilet paper tube
