Science Experiment @ Tracey’s

Tracey and her children have been doing some simple science experiments. This experiment involved putting a raw egg into a container filled with vinegar. Each day the children would check their egg to see if anything changed.

After a couple of days, the children noticed that the shell had fallen away from the egg, and the egg had turned white and solid looking. They were able to lift it from the container and hold it. They smelt it and they all agreed that it smelt like vinegar…and they didn’t like it! They could even see the yolk through the white section.

All the children took turns holding and smelling, and Hallie even noticed that it bounced when she dropped it! When Tracey tried to make it bounce, the egg splattered all over the table. As 2 year old Grace observed, “Tracey popped it. Smashed it on the table.”

“Children see magic because they look for it.”

- Christopher Moore
