We role-played the stable boys and girls taking care of the horses; the fletchers making and repairing the bows and arrows; the blacksmiths making and repairing swords and shields; the brewers making the beer and the servants sewing and caring for the children.
We found the egg cracked when it landed on plastic and wood but landed safely on the fabric and metal. Through discussion, we decided that the reason the egg cracked on the plastic and wood was because these are hard surfaces and felt it landed safely on the fabric because it is soft. We were confused why it did not break on the hard surface of metal.
We discussed how the egg could have landed on the top part of the egg which is the most crack resistant or how the metal could have been thinner and more cushioned from the carpet than the other materials.
We discussed how we could do the experiment again to see if the results were any different.
We found daffodils, puddles and a bird's nest as signs that spring has (just) arrived!
We were guards training in the guard's room; servants cooking in the kitchen; knights praying in the chapel; Lords and Ladies feasting and being entertained by the court jester in the Grand Hall and we rested and looked after the children in the Lord and Lady's chamber.
