"CRYSTAL FUDGE" - A DELISCIOUS EXPERIMENT THAT ILLUSTRATES CONCEPTS ABOUT CRYSTALS.

This experiment demonstrates mechanical weathering caused by tree roots in rock.  You use plaster of Paris and "plant" bean seeds that crack the plaster as they sprout and grow.  This would be a cool experiment to do over a unit period on weathering and erosion.
