Waterbears can go without food or water for more than a decade They can survive temperatures from zero to above the boiling point of water pressure six times stronger than the deepest ocean trench radiation hundreds of times higher than the fatal dose.
This is a game I used to love from Youth Camp. The idea is to build an cushioning system for your (hard-boiled) egg. Everyone drops their egg from a high place (my parents back porch will be perfect for this!) and whoever survives wins! Participants must build with whatever materials they are given. Some ideas include tape, newspaper, old berry containers, or old egg cartons.
Is this an alien? Probably not, but of all the animals on Earth, the tardigrade might be the best candidate. That's because tardigrades are known to be able to go for decades without food or water, to survive temperatures from near absolute zero to well above the boiling point of water, to survive pressures from near zero to well above that on ocean floors, and to survive direct exposure to dangerous radiations.
Discovery Jars Science Lab I found the original ideas on Pinterest, and then I had to try them. I have a bunch of curious kids and this was a fun Saturday afternoon we spent making these. I will list the ingredients under each picture. These turned out so cool!

Potatoes are somewhat healthful as long as you prepare them correctly, for example, boiled or baked and without butter, cheese or sour cream.

They are low calorie and a good food choice if you are attempting to decrease fat, sodium or cholesterol in your diet.
Rock Candy Crystals in the classroom (pg.1 of 2). 8th grade - middle school - categories of crystals - physical science. I used a large metal pot with a spigot like they do for hot cocoa to boil the water in the classroom. - Most items can be purchase at the dollar store.
