A Real Dino Egg


Place a hard-boiled egg into vinegar for several weeks. Every few days, remove the egg and let children feel it. After a few weeks, the egg loses its calcium and becomes soft and leathery. Let children feel the egg again and explain that this is how real dinosaur eggs might have felt.
