First Day of Fall added 9-30-98 Original Author Unknown

Did you know that you can make a raw egg stand on it's end using nothing to help stand it up on the first day of fall? Every first day of fall (and for some reason it only happens then) I bring an egg to school. We go outside on the sidewalk and set up the egg. It may take a few tries to get it into a standing position, but it will! We graph the hours as they go by and see how long our egg will stand. I think this has something to do with the earth's balance...but I'm not positive of the scientific explanation.


Acorn Exploring added 9-17-01 Original Author Unknown

If you live in an area where acorns are readily available, have youngsters help you collect some for these activities. As a safety precaution, have students
wash their hands after handling the acorns.
Here are things you can do with an Acorn:
Sort and classify the acorns into categories: big/little, cap/no cap, dark color/light color.
Weigh the acorns on a balance scale.
Crush an acorn to see what's inside. Use a hand lens to observe it.
Encourage a child to make acorn impressions in play dough.
Do acorns float? Find out at the water table.
Roll a large die; then count out the corresponding number of acorns.
