PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Students will create their own trail mix and kool-aid to demonstrate the difference between mixtures and special types of mixtures called solutions. I teach in a special-ed classroom and utilizing their measuring skills, and involving their taste buds make it easier for them to make a connection to the content.

You will need (per student, makes 1 cup. They could split with a partner or take home.)
¼ cup goldfish
¼ cup pretzels
¼ cup dried cranberries
¼ cup cereal
individual kool-aid packets
Measuring cups (1/4 cup)
water
bowls
cups
something for each student to mix with
ziplock bags to take mixture home

This is a 4 page lab:
Page 1: Students make trail mix, describe physical characteristics of trail mix, identify it as a physical or chemical change, and a mixture or solution.
Page 2: Students dump kool-aid into water and mix it well. They describe the physical characteristics of the kool-aid, identify it as a chemical or physical change, identify if it's a mixture or solution, then list examples of chemical and physical changes.
Page 3: Students define solute, solution, and solvent. Students identify the parts of this project that were solvent, solution,and solute.
Page 4: They then list as many examples of mixtures and solutions as they can.
