Which Came First?

I LOVE to blow my students' minds! :) We have been working this year to develop an argument to support our opinions about something. These activities are framed as using Ethics from Kaplan's Depth and Complexity. I asked them to think about what came first-the chicken or the egg? When they said "chicken", I said ok, where did the chicken hatch from? "Oh, an egg!"-but who laid the egg? Boom goes the dynamite-their minds were blown!

Here was their response (I wrote what they dictated-this was the day of our Egg Hunt and the students did not have the patience to sound out their words properly).
