• Mrs. Cypher’s Chemistry classes are growing crystals on their Chemis-Trees.  Using special blotting paper, students cut out and decorated their trees.  Then, they put the top and bottom pieces of the tree together and sat them in a weigh boat.  Next, the students poured a super saturated salt solution with ammonia and bluing into the weigh boat.  The solution pulls through the paper via capillary action and as the solution evaporates, the salt remains as fluffy crystals.
