Most students don't have or take the time to really analyze the parts of an egg during a normal foods lab. In this lab experience, students will dissect an egg and remove the shell, shell membrane, observe the air cell/pocket, remove part of the chalazae, and separate the egg to analyze the albumen and yolk. This lab is economically efficient enough to be performed in groups as small as two. My students have always enjoyed this hands on experience. Though messy, it makes further egg labs easier to understand and students have grasped other concepts of egg functions and recipes having seen these parts of the egg.
