19/04/17: Separating Mixtures

Separating Mixtures:


Today, we conducted an experiment which involved separating the following mixtures: 


Water & Salt

Water & Sand

Raisins & Flour

Paper Clips & Rice 


We had to work as groups to identify which method of separation was best suited for each mixture. Ultimately, we decided to use evaporation for water and salt, filtration for water and sand, sieving for raisins and flour and magnetic attraction for paper clips and rice.


I really loved this lesson and can't wait for our next experiment!
