Fizz Boom Read: Egg Drop with School Agers

Egg drop supplies

This was a nice, easy program to run for this year’s summer reading program. I asked my coworkers to save some materials:

  • cereal boxes
  • paper towel rolls
  • granola boxes
  • disposable coffee trays

I also supplied:

  • straws
  • paper clips
  • Popsicle sticks
  • scissors
  • tape
  • bubble wrap sheets
  • cotton balls
  • 2 dozen eggs

Egg drop group

I found a funny picture book conveniently titled Egg Drop by Mini Grey that I read to everyone at the beginning of the program. I then asked the children to get into teams. I instructed each team that they were allowed to use:

  1. one cardboard piece
  2. one piece of bubble wrap (I didn’t want them to use too much!)
  3. any other materials

Each team had to construct something that the egg would fit into (I wouldn’t allow the eggs to brought out until the very end of the program). Luckily it was a gorgeous day outside and I’m blessed to have an amazing library property. So I took all the kids outside and lined them up. Each team had a chance to secure their egg, then give me their team name and egg name. We counted down from 5 and I dropped the egg from about 10′. The local newspaper came and printed some awesome photos!
