Teaching STEM through Fairy Tales: Henny Penny

In the tale of Henny Penny, Chicken Little is convinced that the sky is falling.  In this challenge, students work in teams to design a device that will protect Chicken Little in the event that the sky begins falling.

After reading and/or reviewing the story of Henny Penny, students work in teams to design a device that will keep Henny Penny (one piece of frosted wheat cereal) safe when the sky (bean bag) starts falling.

Students will construct their devices and test them by dropping a bean bag from different heights.  Bean bags can be grouped together for more weight if needed.
