Investigate chemical reactions with this hands-on experiment booklet.
🥚How to Make an Eggshell Disappear — Investigation Booklet
Use this experiment booklet to support your science lesson. This resource can be used to guide your students through a fun experiment they can even try at home with their families. In this science experiment, students learn about the chemical reactions when combining an eggshell and vinegar.
Students will work through the booklet and complete a simple experiment. After following the investigation steps, students will draw and label a diagram showing their observations. In addition, students are given an opportunity to predict what will happen when certain elements are changed.
Through this activity, students will show how they can analyze, evaluate, and critique scientific explanations by using experimental and observational testing.
This is a great Easter-time science lesson that makes use of all those eggs!
