Watching Crystals Grow

Amazing science can sometimes happen right before your eyes! The class gets cozy as they watch crystals grow. They use Epsom salts, rocks, and food coloring to create crystals. They'll observe the entire process, documenting every step of the way. The activity includes some very good questions to spur on the inquiry process.
