K-5 students at Northwood Elementary in Roswell experienced a full day of exciting science activities recently.

Teachers in each classroom kicked off the day with a “Wow!” experiment, including sucking a boiled egg into a narrow jar, making snow, and piercing a balloon without it popping.

Students then rotated through classrooms with their Science Journals completing and discussing hands-on experiments involving topics such as gravity, gases, pitch, and motion.

Fourth graders explored how to build a rocket out of a straw, paper, and a paper clip.

Fifth graders debated the best way to package a raw egg to survive the exciting egg drop later in the afternoon.

It was a memorable day of meaningful science.
