Rock Candy

The joys of homeschooling is that you can be learning about one thing and all of the sudden is spirals into another subject all together.

We were learning about Erosion and the Rock Cycle a few weeks ago. This sparked a conversation about crystals which lead to us making Rock Candy.

We used the Science Bob method for making our Rock Candy.

I let him do most of the work, but I was always close by.

Having the candy thermometer can in very useful. It helps when mom went to culinary school.

We even flavored our rock candy! This one was bubble gum!

We watched as the crystals formed. It was very cool, I mean hot!
