  3. 3. Protect your Egg mcromeroriera@gmail.com 4. They must drop the egg with an extended arm while standing on a chair. To do so, they can protect the egg any way they want. The only thing they cannot do is lower the egg with the string! Notes: • They must of course only speak English. • This activity is a great way to lead into a discussion on teamwork and problem solving skills. They are constantly having to listen and give instructions. • You can also have them act like a reserach team that need to name their product and create a team name pushing the team spirit thing. • Hold up a red card if you listen to any other language different to English!
