Product Description
Your kids will love learning seeing an egg’s shell dissolve in vinegar and change colors in food coloring while learning about how the cell membrane works. A raw chicken egg is placed into five different liquids over the course of two weeks (vinegar, water, water with food coloring, salt water, and a liquid their group chooses.) This fun investigation is done right in a glass jar, glass, or beaker (I like plastic beakers) with household materials. You will love clear instructions, steps writing a C-E-R (Claim-Evidence-Reasoning) lab report, simple steps for creating a graph with the data, and grading rubric. Student samples of completed lab reports are included as well.

Your students will learn...
How molecules move across a cell membrane
How to use a model to simulate phenomena (observable occurrences)
How to collect and record data
How to create a graph and drag and drop it into the lab report using NCES Kid Zone Create a Graph- a free online tool at https://nces.ed.gov/nceskids/graphing/classic/
How to create a C-E-R (Claim-Evidence-Reasoning) lab report
How to take measurements in centimeters

MS-LS1-2: Develop and use a model to describe the function of a cell as a whole and ways parts of cells contribute to the function. [Emphasis is on the cell functioning as a whole system and the primary role of identified parts of the cell, specifically the nucleus, chloroplasts, mitochondria, cell membrane, and cell wall.]
