We use our iPads everyday, and for every subject! We are so lucky to be learning and teaching in a 1:1 school! Before we got our iPads, we completed the egg test over the course of 2 days, to prove that we are responsible and ready for our own iPads. Basically, every student was in charge of caring for a raw (not hard boiled!!!) egg. We took our eggs everywhere we would take an iPad.
We were inspired by Mr. Deris and his first grade class. Here is the video we watched to get pumped up for the big test:
We did have a few eggs crack, but we learned some valuable lessons and had some teachable moments due to the broken eggs.
Here are some things we learned:
1. Don't take your egg out of the cup. You wouldn't take your iPad out of the case.
2. Don't leave your egg or iPad on the edge of a table.
3. Carry your egg and iPad with two hands!
4. Don't run with your egg or iPad.
4. Be gentle!
5. Carry one thing at a time! Don't try to carry your iPad with anything else.
6. Above all, IF YOU CAN CRACK AN EGG, YOU CAN CRACK AN IPAD! :)
Many more pictures of us using our iPads and our iPad rules will be posted soon! I sent this idea out to all staff at our school, and it was so fun seeing students in different grades do the test! It has been interesting to compare results and what the students have learned from cracked eggs. Miss Reese's first graders even brought their eggs to our classroom to show me what they were up to! I love it! :)
