See-Through Egg Science
In first grade, students learn about living things – what they need, how they grow, and how they change. First graders are often given the opportunity to observe living things up close in the classroom, from insects to chicks. But what if things are growing that we can't see, such as seeds or chrysalises or eggs?
Here's a science exploration that your child can do with a real chicken egg. Using vinegar, you can make the egg's shell see-through, and observe what's going on inside!
What You Need:
- 1 raw chicken egg in its shell (one from the grocery store is fine)
- White vinegar
- Clear glass jar with a cover
- Turkey baster
