Mad Scientist Monday ... more eggs!

I love doing egg experiments with the kids (they're easy but usually dramatic) so I chose another classic. We did this experiment as part of our ocean unit. Probably half the class correctly hypothesized that the egg would float in the salt water but everyone was excited to see it actually happen.

I mistakenly made this student sheet in last week's document, so when you grab it, you're going to get last week's experiment again. Oops! I'll know better for next week:)

I hope you can use it.


  1. I love this idea! I am printing now and filing it away until we do our ocean unit at the end of this coming school year. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Who knew eggs were so scientific? Thanks Barbara!

  3. I'm so glad you're sharing these great experiments and papers to go with. I am embarassed to say that I don't teach much science. But it's also not entirely my fault. The time schedule we're supposed to follow gives us 15 minutes for everything that's not math, reading, and esl. Seriously! I get some science in, but experiments like this seem short and sweet and might be something I could do more frequently. Thanks so much! And if you don't mind my asking, how long is your school day, and how many days are in your school year? We go from 8-2:15 175 days/ year ( during budget cuts, anyway) . Normally 180 days.

  4. You are going to have me set for Easter science - thanks : )

  5. Hi Barbara -
    That is so cool. I will have to file that away for our ocean unit. THanks for sharing. :o)
