Types of Mixtures Lab is the perfect lab to help students explore the difference between solutions, suspensions and colloids!
In Types of Mixtures Lab, students will participate in making 8 different mixtures, and then will use a series of observations and experimenting with the Tyndall effect to determine if each mixture is a solution, suspension or a colloid This lab uses simple to find (and inexpensive!) household ingredients and can be easily extended by including extra mixtures and observations!
In addition to making and recording observations, students are asked to identify, define and describe solutions, suspensions and colloids.
