Comet kids
lots of bubbles, and there's a white spot in the middle. It loospa sparkly
it smells like a box. Smells gross
it sounds like the ocean
we are wondering if the eggs will hatch. Cj's mom said they need to be fertilized andkept warm to make a chick. Our eggs werepicked fresh from the farm or are from the store so a chick can't grow.
Mrs. Knee's KinderKids
At first nothing happened when the vinegar was put in the jar. Then it looked like bumps were growing on the eggs. We looked closer and the bumps were really bubbles. The eggs got covered with bubbles. Then a while later there was foamy stuff on top of the vinegar. The white eggs had white foam and the brown eggs had brownish foam.
The vinegar didn't smell very good.
We didn't hear a sound from the jars but the Kinderkids were doing lots of talking about the eggs.
We decided to use two kinds of eggs - two browns and two whites just in case one gets broken.
We forgot to weigh them but we may weigh another egg so we will have an idea of how much the eggs weighed before.
Mrs Fennemore's Kinderkids
One white egg. Bubbles started to cover the egg.
The egg started to look like a snowball as the bubbles grew. It was floating
only the sound of the vinegar pouring in
We used a plastic cup for our afternoon group. We wondered if anything different would happen?
Mrs Soltau-Heller's Class
We saw bubbles on both of our eggs. We noticed that after a couple of hours the white started to float.
We are using a brown and a white egg. We noticed that our brown egg has a crack in it. We also noticed the vinegar with the brown egg in it had some brown scum floating on top of the vinegar.
Room 9 Einsteins
Our eggs started to float a little bit straight away. We compared our eggs to the other photos on this site and wondered if both our eggs are actually brown rather than white.. We would love to know what you think but we don't think we ever see eggs as white as the ones in your photos...
We set the experiment up at the end of the day but saw that the vinegar began to bubble within 10 minutes.
quiet fizz
Our eggs are bought from the super market but are free range eggs. If you zoom in on the picture, you will see there are bubbles almost immediately.

Mrs. Malo's Kinderoos
A white egg and a brown egg.
Little bubbles started forming on the eggs. Some thought they looked bumpy.
The bubbles floated from the egg up to the top of the vinegar.
After 30 minutes the eggs started to float.

We decided to do one white egg and one brown egg. They were cold when we started because they came out of the fridge.

The Einsteins
Exciting changes in two days!
  • There is a lot of scum on the water that looks a bit like blood.
  • Both eggs are a lot bigger than the control egg that is still in the packet.
  • When we held it up to the sun, we could see the yolk and the egg is almost transparent.
  • The yolk is in the narrow upper end of the egg - we wonder if it has floated upwards?
  • When we took the egg out of the jar, we realised the shell has gone.
  • The eggs felt rubbery and firm - a bit like a bouncy ball.
Still smells like vinegar but not as sharp.
We wonder if the eggs will continue to swell.

Day 4
The Einsteins
Today we took the eggs out of the jars. They felt firm and have definitely grown lots. Ms Bee dropped the egg gently on the desk and it bounced. The egg has completely disappeared and we think the scum is all that is left. We wonder if the acid in the vinegar has dissolved the egg shell. The egg white is almost transparent now and we can easily see the yolk.
vinegar and something else...
