1/6/16 UPDATE! Another round! Another class asked us to help them out after their class couldn't connect with their partner class. We are going to receive more eggs (and mailed off a container to them also.)
11/25/15 UPDATE! They're off! Six egg containers have been shipped to California. The class did a great job designing and redesigning, working in teams, compromising where needed, taking risks and trusting their teammates. Next Friday afternoon (1:45pm), we will have our Skype call with our partner class...stay tuned!
So egg-cited that we have been invited to participate in this adventure!! We are going to be working in small teams to design, build and eggs-change shipping boxes containing eggs. Our goal is to get them there without cracking or breaking. This will all happen quickly...we have to ship before Thanksgiving! After the packages are "swapped" via mail, we will have a Skype call with our partner class and open them LIVE! Can't wait!! Read more about it here.
If you have any of the following supplies that you would like to donate, please send them in as soon as possible:
6 -8 shoe boxes
small Ziploc baggies
1 roll of paper towels
I'm taking care of the masking tape, string, copy paper and rubber bands. We are going to begin designing and sketching this Friday afternoon about 2:00. Come on by, if you would like to help! (Be sure that you are cleared as a volunteer!) Actually testing and building will take place next week...
