In the Classroom: Crystal Snowflakes

Fourth grade students studying rocks and minerals got a real treat from sub Anne Phillips.  They used white pipe cleaners to sculpt various snowflake shapes and suspended these finished shapes to a craft stick hanging in a solution of Borax and water.  Within about three hours there were crystals growing on the snowflake pipe cleaners.  They then attached a ribbon for hanging and a personalized name tag with the year to take home as a holiday ornament.
