Egg Break
Submitted by Barb
After reading "Humpty Dumpty" give your children raw eggs. Let them drop the eggs on different substances (a pillow, the table, cardboard, etc). Ask them what surface would have made Humpty not crack. For added effect you can graph the results of the children's egg drop (the height and surface that they dropped it on).
