Shamrock Crystals

Mrs. Worth’s 5th grade science students have been learning about solutions. On St. Patrick’s Day, they created saturated solutions in order to form crystals. Students were able to create and observe crystals made of borax, rock salt and epsom salt. If your student has Mrs. Worth for science be sure to ask them which part of their solution is the solute and which part is the solvent! Want to try making crystals at home? Check out the easy to follow directions in the link below.
