  • 3 dull or dirty looking pennies
  • 1/4 cup white vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon table salt
  • paper towel or cotton pad
  • small non-metal bowl
  • Small non-metal container with lid

Penny Change Experiment Instructions


Part 1 – Dull to Shiny


  • Pour the vinegar and salt into the small non-metal bowl and stir to dissolve.

Part 2 – Shiny to Green


  • Fold a paper towel or cotton pad to fit the bottom of your container with a lid.
  • Wet the paper towel or cotton pad with a few drops of vinegar.
  • Put one penny on the wet pad and cover with the lid. (The lid keeps the vinegar from drying out.)

  • Put one penny on a dry pad or paper towel.
  • Dip one penny in your salt/vinegar mixture and place it on a dry pad or paper towel.
  • Observe your pennies at 1, 2, 3 and 8 hours.

Experiment Tip


Pennies made in 1982 or earlier are made of solid copper, use them in this reaction to make it work even better! Pennies made after 1982 are made from copper and zinc, they react a little less.


Experiment Follow-Up


Complete the lab notes section of the free printable lab notebook (available in the free printable library) with your kids. Have them record their predictions and observations. Which pennies oxidized the most quickly? Why do you think this happened? Look at the back of the penny on the vinegar pad. What does it look like? Why?
