Week 16, Day 1: Borax Crystal Lab

ODD BLOCK PERIOD: Begin the Crystal Growing Lab and while waiting begin to watch FROM THE EARTH TO THE MOON :PART 5 "SPIDER"

Here are the materials for the lab

Here are the finished crystals on their pipe cleaner bases.

Here are the crystals the next morning. You pour out the Borax solution (3 tablespoons Borax in 8oz of Hot water) the morning after and let them dry a day.

It's fun and meets the state chemistry standards for crystals

I hope this helps,

Love to Teach and Teach with Passion

Remember...It's not Magic, It's Science
