Stalactites and Stalagmites
By Erin Horner
  

1     If you were to venture deep into a cave, you might see many things. You might see a few bats. You might see some neat bugs. You might also see some unique rock formations hanging from the ceiling or coming up from the ground. These are stalactites and stalagmites.
 
2     Stalactites and stalagmites start their lives as water. When water with a lot of calcium carbonate enters a cave, something happens. A chemical change takes place. The calcium carbonate in the water becomes hard. Little by little these deposits pile on top of each other. Eventually, these grand formations are born.
