Grow your own crystals!

After today's lessons, I thought you might want to try and grow your own Image result for crystals word 

at home (or bring in your materials and I will help you at school!)

Here are some links to get you started:

Glow in the dark crystals

Salt crystals- 3 different ways.

Copper sulphate/sulfate crystals.

As you try this, think about the different properties of these crystals. What crystal system is its growing pattern- what shape is it? What colour? How would you describe it?
