A little late for the holiday season, but better late than never. One of the standards my students have to learn is the repeating pattern of the crystaline lattice. With a little bit of time before break (and after a unit test), my students were able to make some Borax crystal holiday ornaments (and they took their ornaments home). The video shows the making of process, which my students did. After they return from break, we will go into the nitty gritty science part of the crystal formation.
