Science - Borax crystals!

This was the equipment we needed to make our borax crystals:



First, we made a shape using a pipe cleaner.
Next, we tied a piece of string to our pipe cleaner shape.
Thirdly, we tied the other end of the string to a pencil so that our pipe cleaner shape could be suspended in the jar.
After that, we put 3 tablespoons of borax into our jars and filled them with boiling water.
Some of us added food colouring to give our crystals colour.
Next we stirred the boiling water until the borax had dissolved.
Finally we suspended our pipe cleaner shape in the jar and waited for the crystals to form.
