My 2nd grader is doing a math project on crystals. He is making models of 
the 7 geometric shapes that crystals are classified under and then he 
wants to make his own crystals. The easiest crystals for him to make would 
be sugar crystals. 
My question is this, which category, if any, would sugar crystals fall
