Activity 1 is a rally table using balloons to discover the similarities and differences between solids, liquids, and gases. In activity 2 students will use the scientific method to answer the question: Does the state of an egg affect the spin of an egg? Two versions are included: 2nd/3rd grade and 4th/5th grade. Choose the one that works best for your students. The 3rd activity is an egg challenge. The students must challenge an adult to figure out if an egg is hard boiled or raw. In activity 4 students use what they have learned to discover what is inside a clay ball.
