Coloring Eggs

Posted by Page Phelps | | Posted On Tuesday, March 30, 2010 at 4:30 PM

Today we colored our Easter eggs.  I had some boys interested in the eggs and their yolk.  We discussed how an egg has an egg white and a yolk and when it is not cooked it is runny.  We learned that when you boil eggs for 20 minutes that they turn hard and that the insides turned into a semi-solid.  The boys were also interested in whether our egg would have turned into a chicken or not so we looked up the stages of development for a fertilized egg.   If you are interested in sharing the development with your kids the website is http://www.photosfan.com/chicken/ .  It was pretty interesting and we learned that it takes 21 days for a little chickie to hatch.  We also learned the temperature at which the chickies need to incubate at.
