In this one-day class, learners will investigate eggshells. They will discover that eggshells are a lot stronger than you think. We will spend the first half of class exploring the properties of eggs and testing strength with a raw egg in several ways. Please have a bowl ready for accidents! In the second half, learners will figure out how chemical reactions allow us to dye eggs. We will also try different methods to dye them. Some experiments will be done after class and students will be...
Students will be able to describe and identify the properties of an object (eggshells). Students will be able to construct an evidence-based argument about the strength of the oval and arch. Students will be able to explain how the shape and stability of the oval and arch structure of a natural object are related to their function.
No homework will be required. Students may share the results of an experiment done after class via email.
1 raw egg; 2 hard-boiled eggs; 1bowl to catch messes; a small spray bottle of white vinegar; food coloring; borax if a student decides to grow crystals, 2 water bottle caps, books to test a raw egg for the amount of weight it will bear; a copy of experiments that can be performed after class; towel or washcloth for messes; paper towels and rubber band/tape/twist tie; an apron or art shirt to protect clothes.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Assessment will be through student discussion so instruction can be changed if needed.
1 hour 10 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Parental guidance will be necessary for the egg-dying experiment and any experiment your child chooses to do after class.
We will use An Egg Is Quiet by Dianna Hutts Aston and Sylvia Long. If time, we will also use Rechenka's Eggs by Patricia Polacco. Many of the experiments are from Spangler Science. Students will also be provided with egg experiments they can do after class and email me a picture.
