Hi i’m back and today we are going to be talking about my self-directed science project.
My partner was Maia we both did everything together except our blog posts. We were doing a stop motion on how crystals grow and here is some information about crystals.
How crystals are made:
Crystals are made in nature when molecules start to cool and harden. That process is called crystallization it happens when magma hardens or water evaporates and when nature mix too.
What crystals are made for:
Crystals are used for rings and jewellery and housework for example quartz usually is on a table in a person’s house. You also usually would wear diamond necklaces or earrings.
Where to find crystals:
You can find crystals almost anywhere the most common place to find them are in reveens and forests.
Are crystals rocks or minerals?
Crystals are minerals, not rocks.
What is the mineral cycle?
The mineral cycle: The plant grows then it turns into olive oil then it reduces from olive oil into a type of rock ash comes in and the rock turns into a mineral and the mineral turns into a crystal.
now that you have read all the information I know i can tell you how me and Maia stop motion turned out: Me and Maia made a couple last-minute things. starting with a person and 3 more crystals for our stop motion. We also took turns recording and taking picture by picture and we had to have the right lighting which was hard to find. Then once we finished it looked alright but not amazing because the camera moved but it was okay. Maia made the moon I made the stars we both made the rock path and we both made the trees and we both painted it. It took around 1 week and 2 days to finish and it turned out just fine but it was really fun to make.
Here are some pictures of us building and our stop motion of crystals being made.
