Middle and/or High School Chemistry - Classification of Matter Sort
Students will work in groups to sort cards about matter into groups. The cards contain information about elements, compounds, homogeneous, and heterogeneous mixtures. There are also particulate drawings of each of the types included. You can leave this open, letting students sort the cards into any groups and explain their reasoning, or you may provide more guidance, instructing the students to sort them into the 4 different types of matter included. To provide more of a challenge and to decrease simple process of elimination matching, there are different numbers of examples, descriptions, and drawings for the types.
