A fun hands-on activity where students separate the individual components from a mixture using simple lab techniques. The mixture contains readily available materials for a five-component mixture. Mixtures are an excellent example of a physical change. The separation procedure is completely described. In addition to the activity, you get:
- Document camera images and notes
- Cut and Paste notes for students
- Materials, Procedure, and Result table for students science notebook
- Examples of everyday mixtures and demonstrations
- Grading rubric
- Tip for removing the iron filings
You also get a bonus worksheet where students total the number of colored M&Ms in one package mixture. The data can be compiled into a bar graph or percent total pie chart, whichever is appropriate for your grade level. Custom graph paper is provided.
