Rock experiments

This summer O Boy was all about rocks.  So we found a really amazing book at the library (see below) and decided to do some of the experiments in it.  Here we are all decked out in our safety equipment (plastic goggles from our Little Tikes toolset) working on making some crystals.

She is never one to be left behind or left out!

Thankfully I still have a great scale leftover from my teaching days.

These were the three crystals we were trying to grow: salt, sugar and epsom salt.  Unfortunately, probably because of our low temps and high humidity, this experiment didn't work all that well.  Our alum crystals were really cool though.  Great book!
