Experimenting in Science!

Yesterday we got to look at two different types of chicken bones:  some that were just the bones, and others that had been soaked in vinegar for one week.  We spent a lot of time discussing the differences in color, texture, and makeup of these bones.  What we learned was that the ones soaked in vinegar had all of their calcium stripped out of them and they weren't very strong.  We now understand how important calcium is in our diet.  Don't forget to get your dairy intake in some way!

Science HELP!!

Hi parents,

Next week we are doing an experiment in science and we could use your help.  I am looking for a volunteer to boil chicken wings until all of the meat comes off.  At that point, 1/2 of the chicken wings would need to be soaked in vinegar for a week, while the other half do not.  I will supply ALL of the materials.

Please let me know if you are interested in helping with this.  Send me an email at jpatton@sd25.org.

I really appreciate it!
Thanks again!
Ms. Patton
