Egg-Citing Science

In Science, Year 4 have been learning all about the digestive system, as part of this they have learnt the names and functions of the different types of teeth.

Linking to this, and using their Be Ambitious Collaboration skills, the children have been conducting an egg-citing investigation into the affects of different drinks on tooth enamel - the hardest, toughest part of the human body.

Having discussed different types of investigations, Year 4 decided that carrying out a comparative fair test would best suit their investigation. They generated a scientific question, made a prediction, planned and set up their investigation. Not being able to use real teeth, they have used hard boiled eggs as the shell represents the tooth enamel.  

Throughout the week, they are making daily observations to see how the different drinks are effecting the 'teeth' and, next week, will draw conclusions about which drink causes most damage to our teeth.
