An interactive homework assignment that involves student's parents or guardians learning about separating mixtures and dissolving substances.
I am always looking for ways that students can take the science they learn in class home and share with their parents.
This is a simple inquiry lab that asks "How can salt and water be separated?"
The students will follow the steps and draw and write about what they did.
Adult supervision is required since a stove is needed.
You could also use it as a in-class lab.
