We are SO CLOSE to our goal!! Help us #FillTheMap before Easter!
On March 21, we posted a high-energy video from a teacher training exercise in Fauquier County, Virginia that went viral and picked up 70K+ views in less than a week’s time! The success of the video inspired us to launch the worldwide #EDrenaline Rush #EggDashChallenge, and invite teachers around the world to join in the fun. Thanks to the incredible connective power of Twitter, the party has spread to classrooms all across the U.S. and beyond.
Can we #FillTheMap before Easter?
Calling all teachers from the states listed here!
- New Hampshire
- North Dakota
- South Dakota
And let’s not forget our neighbors to the north. Calling all education professionals in the following Canadian provinces and territories:
- British Columbia
- Newfoundland and Labrador
- Northwest Territories
- Nova Scotia
- Prince Edward Island
The #EggDashChallenge wants YOU! Crazy high energy. Super easy to adapt for any content area. And lots of fun for learners of any age! Take a look:
#EggDashChallenge my year 10s wrote 2 sets of clues in Indonesian stating where the egg was hidden. One clue went in the egg, the other went to students. They had to find the egg with the matching clue. Great success! pic.twitter.com/SgCa2yPiTM

And a bunch of outdoorsy types making an egg-citing mess in Kentucky:

Adding WEST VIRGINIA to our map!
I couldn’t just let West Virginia be blank on the #EggDashChallenge map! So #TigerAPLang competed today to see who knew their rhetorical terms the best. There might have been a few eggs in there with…other tasks. We took it outside for a dose of sunshine! #EDrenaline pic.twitter.com/scu4cir1A1
