Peeps Experiment II

To go along with out Egg Unit, I found a Peeps Experiment on Pinterest. It is from Mom to 2 Posh Lil Divas. We used five Peeps, water, vinegar, apple juice, soda, and laundry detergent. And, because we are teachers, I created a recording sheet for this experiment. The students recorded how the Peeps changed in appearance each day over one school week. Here's our results:


Day 1

Day 2

Day 4

Day 5: Final results:
Based on our experiment, vinegar had the most effect on the Peeps, with water as a close second. The students really liked our GHOST Peep in the laundry detergent. But we decided that it did its job, got the color/stain out! I asked my students what other liquids we could perform this experiment with and they suggested orange juice, soup/broth, milk, and veggie oil.
