Dental Health Month- Egg Experiment

        Just in case you didn't know, along with everything else that February has to offer, it is also Dental Health Month.  To show the students what effect different drinks have on our teeth, my class does this neat little week long experiment.
       At home I boil three eggs.  The first day of the experiment we record what each egg looks like and then place one in coke, one in red Kool-Aid, and one in lemonade.  Each day we take the eggs out and describe what we saw on a recording sheet.  On Friday, we take the eggs out of the liquids and brush one of them with a toothbrush and toothpaste.

  3. I did this experiment with my class the last two days. I hardboiled 6 eggs (one for each table) and we placed them in a cup of soda overnight. The kids wrote what their predictions were about what would happen to the egg. Today we brushed the egg, and they began to come clean! I like the idea of using not just soda and making a graphic organizer.

  4. Thanks so much for sharing your chart! I've been putting off dental health while I finished another unit and this will be perfect. I've done the coke but never the others- good idea!
