|Here are our water jelly crystals before we put them in the baggies.|
|And here they are after adding the seeds and stapling them to the cardstock "Crystal Gardens".|
It was a very exciting and "colorful" experiment. Most of the kids predicted correctly what would happen to the crystals.
We also did experiments putting sugar and salt water on black paper and letting it dry. We saw the different crystal shapes of salt and sugar.
Then we looked at the crystals through our magnifying viewers.
Water Jelly Crystals at Steve Spangler Science. I bought a pound for $16 and I'll have lots left over for next year. It's a very cool experiment for kids to experience.
