Keeping Water Balance Both Inside and Outside Your Body

My 7th-grade daughter conducted an experiment that helped her to see how our bodies had the ability to maintain water balance in and outside of itself, by using an egg.
Yeah, I found it kind of weird at first, until I saw the bubbles coming up from the vinegar solution.
Using the egg we observed how the water level balanced out when the egg was exposed to various liquid environments. Like vinegar and thick corn syrup.
It became a clear see-through egg!
The vinegar ate the shell, which is (calcium carbonate) clean away!
Can you believe it! It’s called “OSMOSIS” (when water seeps through from one place to another)
Sorta like when your camping and your sleeping bag somehow becomes wet, that’s that OSMOSIS working!
This was a cool Abeka Books, experiment!
Remember, although it was for my 7th grader, my entire homeschooling family got a chance to OBSERVE!
That’s the beauty of homeschooling!
