This quick and easy science experiment can be set up in a matter of minutes! The actual process is a few days, but it gives kids plenty of time for observation and to see the scientific method play out. Hands on, engaging, and motivating classroom experiences get kids excited about science and writing!

Everything you need to launch experiment writing in your classroom and hook your kids immediately! Get kids engaged and WRITING!


First, place a raw egg in a cup filled with vinegar. Leave it for at least 3 days. After 3 days, take the egg out. Run it under warm water and rub the shell off. You will be left with a RUBBERY egg. It will also be enlarged. Simply writing this experiment and keeping an observation journal is a great activity.

To go even further, after the naked egg experiment writing and observation journal, have the kids write their own experiments to conduct on their individual naked eggs. Some ideas include putting their naked eggs in salt water, regular water, food coloring, Mountain Dew, Cola, vinegar and baking soda, and more.

BE CAREFUL when rubbing the shell off the egg. Sometimes the eggs do POP. Have a few back up eggs, just in case. :)

What's Included?

- Labels for each student cup for either their name or class number

- 6 versions of observation, reflection, or experiment journals

- observation drawings page with 6 days of observation pictures on a page

- experiment writing pages (materials, procedures, hypothesis)

*Writing pages are included with and without borders.

***I cannot begin to describe for you how OBSESSED my students have been with this experiment YEAR AFTER YEAR. It works wonders for getting kids to write their observations, learn the scientific method, and become scientists AND writers. This one experiment has the potential of lasting weeks and becoming many other individual experiments in your classroom. The students are engaged in their own experiments but also their classmates'. It's truly a community learning process and one that I have used every single year, no matter the grade I have taught.
