Making Crystals

This week we made crystals out of a Borax solution to show one way mineral crystals can form.  Here is a copy of the experiment if you'd like to try it again at home (parent supervision required).  Be sure to check out the "Questions to Consider" and the "Additional Activities", too!

  1. Kaci had a great time doing this...too bad her's didn't have any crystals. She said it was because she "spun" hers too fast...Thank you !!

    1. That's an example of an experimental variable! Glad you had fun, Kaci!
