We had so much fun with our Boiling Egg Experiment. I just knew we needed to expand on the experience. I’ve rounded up more egg experiments and made a family day of it!
Big M titled our science projects “egg”speriments. YEAH!
Egg Experiment #1 – Air Pressure
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 – Newton’s Law
Next up was Newton’s Law. Rookie Parenting has a great post on just how to conduct this egg experiment. They used a plastic egg. We used a raw egg. What will you choose?
Egg Experiment #3 – Disappearing Egg Shell
We soaked two eggs in vinegar to make The Egg Shell Disappear Premeditated Leftovers 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 – Ask and Answer
We soaked the naked egg in sugar water over night. The egg was supposed to shrink but instead, it grew.
We touched it, talked about it and then we decided to place a shelled egg in a bowl of sugar the next 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 explore science. Encourage your little one to record their finding with words or pictures.
More Egg Experiements to Try
Here are a few more egg experiemnts we can’t wait to try.
I can’t wait for another science day! What should our “theme” be next time?
