Description:

Learners grow sugar crystals (rock candy). They make a hot solution that has an excess of sugar dissolved in it, then as the solution cools, they see sugar crystals form. Learners can use food coloring to grow crystals of different colors and can reuse their rock candy as a seed crystal to make larger sugar crystals. This resource contains background information about different crystal structures and properties. This activity requires adult supervision.
