Year 4 have been bringing their old books in to share with them with each other. What kind children!

We wanted to see what would happen to these egg shells when we put them in various liquids.

We wanted to make our investigation a fair test but someone decided to play football with the egg that was in the fizzy orange!

After a few days, we looked at the egg shells to see if there was any change.

Our teeth!
