  1. What did we Learn from the egg drop experiment? Mrs. Thiry’s 4th and 5th grade classes

  2. We were given a problem”How do we get an egg to not break when dropped from a distance?

  3. We made a hypothesis:what could we fill our container with that would prevent the egg from breaking?

  4. We conducted our experiment

  5. We made observations using our senses sight and hearing

  6. And then the conclusion… did it break?

  7. What were the control variables? • We dropped it from the same height. • We dropped it the same way. • We used the same icing containers • We dropped it onto the same surface.

  8. What were the independent variables in the 4th grade experiment?

  9. All the different filling inside!

  10. Is it important to keep all of these control variables the same? Why?

  11. If the control variables weren’t the same would the comparisons between the containers be fair?

  12. One group dropped onto a softer surface. Did it make a difference?

  13. If you were successful, your results won’t be accepted until:Your experiment is…1. repeated by different people.2. Repeated in different places3. Repeated at different times

  14. Were there any potential hazards or precautions involved in this experiment?

  15. If your conclusion didn’t match your hypothesis (your egg broke)what should you do?

  16. 1. Make a new hypothesis.2. Redo the experiment

  17. Quiz 5th grade • Name 2 control variables. • We used the scientific method. What is the acronym we memorized and used? • In order for your results to be accepted, they have to be repeated by different _________ in different _________ and at different ________. • What were the independent variables from the 4th grade experiment (or the girl in the playhouse experiment we watched)?

  18. Quiz 4th grade • Name 2 control variables. • We used the scientific method during our experiment. What is the acronym we memorized? • Why is important to keep some things the same in our experiment? • When one group dropped onto a softer surface, was this a fair experiment?
