Humpty Dumpty

This week is Nursery Rhyme week.  In addition to focusing on the rhyming words we wanted to had fun with the  stories behind the rhymes.  I love doing cooking and science type activities so Humpty Dumpty gave us a great opportunity.  Many of the children knew that Humpty is an egg.  What they hadn't thought about before is whether they could put an egg shell back together once it is cracked.  We decided to see if it was possible.
We started with hard boiled eggs.


A cardboard brick/block was our wall.


They got to make their Humpty Dumpty fall as many times as necessary to crack the shell.


Then they worked diligently to peel the little pieces off. ( We had already tried putting a shell back together during circle time with the egg I showed them).

Some children ate the white part, some tried the yoke, some just peeled the egg, some ate the whole thing.

They are already asking when we can do it again!
