Hello guys welcome back to another post. Today I will be telling you what we had to do on this project and what I chose to do. The topic for the project was rocks and minerals and we had to make and get info on rocks and minerals. Lets get started with this post.
Being ready to learn
crystals can take up to 3 million years to grow. Crystals form in nature when molecules gather to stabilize when liquid starts to cool and harden. This process is called crystallization and can happen when magma hardens or when water evaporates from a natural mixture too. Many crystals start small but as more atoms join and create a uniform and repetitive pattern, the crystal grows. Each crystal has there own values and colors that are worth thousands.
Setting Learning Goals
These are my learning goals that helped me finish this project.
Engaging In The Learning Process
I built a paper Mache cave with homemade crystals. I built the base of my cave out of paper Mache and then I painted my cave. Then I had to wait for the paint to dry. Once the paint was dry I added some crystals.
I think this project was amazing and it was so fun to work on this with my friends and teacher to help me. at first it was tough and confusing but then once you get started you start feeling better. I would actually would have made my cave a little bigger and wider but overall it was one of the best projects I have ever done.
