This product includes two different editable lab activities about mixtures. In both activities, you use any food mixture, such as Chex mix, trail mix, or Lucky Charms. I included a simple 1-page activity, as well as a more complex 2-page activity that follows the scientific method.
In the "Simple Activity," students will identify the different parts of the mixture, as well as draw a picture and list the physical properties of each of those items.
In the "More Complex Activity," students will measure the masses of each individual items in the snack mix. They will compare that to the mass of the entire mix to answer the question, "Is the mass of an object is equal to the sum of its parts?"
This item is a great hands-on activity that the students will love!
