Our Science Day!

Today, we have been doing a Science experiment all about helping an egg to fly. We read a book which was all about an egg who wanted to fly like the birds.

We designed and made parachutes to keep the egg flying and wanted it to land without breaking. We tried different sizes of parachutes and predicted which one would make the egg stay in the sky the longest.

Can you remember which one?

What force helped the parachute stay in the air? What force pulled the parachute towards the ground?

Can you write about our investigation?

    Today we have made a parachute to hold a egg and not crack it egg. We are all making them this afternoon and seeing if it will stay in the air for a few seconds. We have also predicted on what what we think will keep it in the air a large parachute or a small one. We will keep the height but not the size of the parachute.

    Today we did science for the whole day but we did all the usual subjects like maths and reading. We was also doing science to . In science we was doing an experiment on how to keep the egg in the sky the longest with the parachutes

    Today we have been learning about how to design an effective parachute.So far in our science lesson , we have found out that the shapes of an object can effect how slowly or quickly it falls.We are going to investigate how the size of a parachute effects the speed at which the object falls.

    Today we investigated if the egg will drop using a parachute to try make it not crack. The equipment that we will need is a bin bag, eggs, cups , string , sticky tape, newspaper and a ruler. I predicted that I will need a parachute with a larger surface area to keep the egg flying in the air the longest.

    I love to do science but to do It for a full day is so fun! This is such a fun experience, we hope we don’t crack an egg though on our drop test’s with our parachutes

    Today we have read a book called The egg drop and the book is about an egg dreaming to fly. So he went to the top of a tower and he jumped off it . He thought he was flying but he was falling and he splattered on the ground. The eggs tried to put him together with chewing gum, plasters, tape and nails but it never worked. We are going to find out how long it takes for the egg to land with the parachute.

  8. Megan says:

    Today we will be dropping a egg that is in a parachute as part as our science topic .Our teacher will pick three which are the best and different sizes to investigate who prediction is right.

    Today, we planned how to make the egg a parachute so it can complete its dream of flying. We read a book about the egg and how he wanted to fly like the birds, insects, planes, helicopters and clouds. So he climbed a tower that had 583 steps in it and when he got to the top he jumped off and when he was in the sky he thought he was flying but instead he was falling.

    Today we are learning about science. In science, we are learning about designing our own parachute. We read an egg book called the egg drop. The book is about an egg going up 583 steps and jumping off thinking he was flying but he was falling. In the afternoon, we are designing our own parachute so then the egg stays in the sky! We are going to investigate how surface area affect the time taken for an object to fall.

  11. Azraa says:

    Now we will design parachute to help keep the egg in the air the longest so he could fly and achieve what he always dreamed of.We are going to investigate how surface area effects the time taken for an object to fall to the ground

    Today is science day and so far we have read a story called egg drop. It’s where there’s an egg who reeeally wants to fly but he’s to young. Then one day he climbed up. This tower that had 583 steps!!!!! He stood on the top of the tower and jumped…. He thought he was flying but he was falling! It took a while to fix the egg with string plasters tape tomato sauce and chewing gum! But the egg wasn’t wasted because it turned it to a fried egg! Then we did some maths we did area of pictures so it could help us measure the area of the parachute when we come to make it. We then did our normal investigating thing like the prediction, equipment, method and results. We will make this in the afternoon by measuring the bin bag and cut it so it s a square, tape some string on the bin bag put a egg in a cup and tape the cup with the string. Then stand some where and drop it three times from the same height and make sure you time it. Try it with different surface areas. So far it has been amazing today!!!! By Eshal 5k!

      I really enjoyed the experiment. The smaller the surface area of the parachute the faster it fell and the larger the surface area of the parachute the slower it will fall because of the air resistance.

    Today, we read the book The egg drop. In the book, the egg always imagined to fly. He went on top of the tower which was 583 steps. He jumped off and thought he was flying but he was falling. He splattered on the floor and the eggs tried to put him together but it never worked. We are going to investigate how much time it takes for it to fall.

    I like the egg drop because it is very fun I enjoyed it .
