This experiment simulates an acid attack on bones. Bones are rich with calcium, just like your teeth. When you drink soda pop it affects your teeth like the vinegar affects the chicken bones in this experiment.
What you'll need:
2 clean chicken bones (ask your parents to save them for you the next time you have chicken for dinner)
1 bottle of white vinegar
What to do:
Pour several inches of vinegar into the container. Soak the clean chicken bones in the vinegar overnight.
What will happen:
Check out the bones after they've soaked in the vinegar overnight. Are they softer or harder? This is why it’s very important to brush your teeth every night when you go to bed.
Be sure to throw the bones away in the garbage after you're finished.
Note: with any science experiment, it is recommended you have an adult present for supervision.
