Your Name: ________________________   Hour:  _____

DAY 1  Date:_____________________                                          

1) Obtain an egg.  2)  If possible, weigh the egg.  3) Using a string and a ruler, find the circumference of the egg. 

4)  Make qualitative observations.  5)  Put the egg in a cup and cover with vinegar.  6)  Make observations. 

7)  Make a prediction about what you think will happen to the egg.  8) Explain why you came up with that prediction.

9)  Leave the egg in the vinegar for 24 hours until the shell is dissolved.  At this point, all boxes except Teacher Initials and What actually happened should be filled in.

DAY 2  Date:_____________________                                                                                                      

1) Remove the egg from vinegar. 2) Discard vinegar.  3) Rinse egg.  4) Weigh the egg again.  5) Measure the circumference again. 

6) Make observations.  7) TURN BACK TO DAY 1 --- 8) Fill in the “What actually happened” column. FOCUS ON THE SIZE, NOT ON THE SHELL.  9)  Fill in the “Analysis” (on the bottom).  In your explanation, include correctly-used vocab from this unit.

10) TURN BACK TO DAY 2 ---  11)  Put the egg in ½ cup of corn (Karo) syrup.  Read the back of the container to find out what it is made of.  12)  Make observations.  Fill in what you think will happen and your reason.  At the end of today, entire Day 1 and all shaded sections from Day 2 should be filled in.  Wait overnight.

1)  Get egg.  Carefully rinse.  Discard corn syrup.  2)  Record mass and circumference data and observations.  3) RETURN TO DAY 2 

4)  Fill in what happened and analysis.  Use vocabulary correctly in analysis.  5)  RETURN TO DAY 3.  6) Put the egg in a jar of plain tap water so egg is more than covered.  (1 – 1.5 cups)  7) Make observations.  Make predictions.  At this point, all of Day 2 and the gray parts of this table should be completed.  Wait overnight.
