family Easter science day EGG EXPERIMENTS

Did you love our Boiling Egg Experiment?  Well if you did, today’s egg experiments are going to have you jumping for joy!

Big M titled our science projects “egg”speriments.  YEAH!  We bought extra eggs and I saved plenty of egg-y science experiments on my Pinterest Science Board.

Egg Experiment #1

Investigating Air Pressure was first on our list.  Head over to Science-Sparks.com for the detailed how-to.  As you can see one of our eggs worked and one didn’t.  The egg that didn’t work led to a great conversation about why it didn’t work!

Egg Experiment #2 

Next up was Newton’s Law.  Ordinarylifemagic.com has a great post on just how to conduct this egg experiment.  (And I agree with her… use raw eggs!)  Oh boy was this fun.

Egg Experiment #3

We soaked two eggs in vinegar to make The Egg Shell Disappear Science-Sparks.com has the info on this one.

I wish we would have made more than two because we lost one when rubbing off the shell.

Egg Experiment #4

We soaked the naked egg in sugar water over night.  The egg was supposed to shrink but instead it grew.  (Maybe we didn’t use enough sugar.)  We touched it, talked about it and then we decided to place the egg in a bowl of sugar over night… just to see what would happen.  Are you curious?  Too bad… you’ll have to try it out yourself. ;) ;)

Science tip (courtesy of Little M):  A science journal is a wonderful way to really explore science.  Encourage your little one to record their finding with words or pictures.

Tinkerlab.com and TheChocolateMuffinTree.com have been celebrating EGG WEEK.  Pop over and see the awesome activities they have posted.

I can’t wait for another science day!  What should our “theme” be next time?

    That is one huge egg. Though, I am curious to see them get smaller, I am much entertained with egg’s enhancement. Leaving me guessing will definitely make me perform the experiment.

      It is worth it… trust me! The experiment went on for days because as long as you don’t pop it you can do so much. We also soaked it in water tinted with food coloring.
