First, we tried to make rock candy.
It didn’t exactly turn out like the rock candy you buy. And no one wanted to eat it. But after three weeks, this is what we had: A Lesson in Crystals.
We’ll try the Borax method next. Not for rock candy, I hasten to add. But to learn about crystallization, natch!
Easier chemistry lesson? In the kitchen, making rolls.
Or is it biology, since those are yeast we’re growing and killing?
I dunno. Maybe I’m not cut out for this homeschooling thing, after all.
