To make our bird unit especially appealing to LD we, of course, had to add in some science egg-speriments!
|While DD and I were unable to smash our eggs…|
|LD did!! We’re not quite sure why, but then when he tried it with a second egg he couldn’t break it no matter how hard he tried. Anyway, this experiment was designed to show how strong egg shells are and how their shape helps protect them.|
|We added a lot of salt to one cup and had plain water in the other cup.|
|The egg in salty water floated, while the other egg sunk. We talked about why that was the case and how salt molecules changed the density of the water.|
