Science Sunday: Easter edition

Science Sunday

008 

So, let’s pretend I didn’t break all of the eggs I have dropping them earlier this week.  Or let’s say I did and I made it to the grocery store before Thursday afternoon.

Then let’s pretend I actually was able to do the science experiment/Easter lesson I wanted to do instead of having to run errands for an upcoming vacation.

 

So I could share with you the science of Easter Story Cookies also known as meringues (head over to that link for a great explanation of how to do meringues to tell the Easter story).

 

Instead, I’ll just explain to you verbally, so much more boring that whipping the eggs breaks up the amino acids and the protein molecules by adding air into the mixture.  When they are heated the molecules are solidified creating the yummy lighter than air mixture.

 

Actual more technical explanation, that is not written by a woman madly trying to get things done while her daughter is taking a short bath and her sons are attempting to conquer the world using a stick and some other imaginary weapon.

 

Let’s see some other Bible related science:

Almost Unschoolers showed the science behind Resurrection Rolls.

 

Mad About Jesus has a whole section of science experiments to show different Biblical principles.

 

Mama to 4 Blessings showed a great illustration about obedience using pennies.

Almost Unschoolers showed how sin can change us by doing the classic change the carnation’s color experiment.

  1. I decided to skip the “dropping the eggs” step while following your french toast recipe – so we did get to make the cookies. But, they are pretty hard to make with a group of children while keeping their focus on the lesson – so I didn't even attempt to throw any science into it. They did turn out hollow this year – which they usually don't – so we must have finally beat the eggs enough 🙂

  2. We did those two years ago and ours weren't hallow either! Totally ruined the “empty tomb” message!

    The Ressurection Rolls worked great last year for us.

    I loved each of your features today. Got some great ideas for building up my babies over the next year. Thanks for the ideas.
