A 4-page worksheet
that provides a basic summary of common separation techniques for separating mixtures
including sieving, filtration, evaporation, distillation, and chromatography.
I typically use this document with my students after covering the nature of homogeneous and heterogeneous mixtures in a previous lesson. After demonstrating some of the basic separation techniques in class, such as evaporation and distillation, I hand out this reading as a homework exercise to summarize the lesson. In subsequent lessons, students perform several lab activities
to give them hands-on experience with separating mixtures using the aforementioned techniques. Please refer to the "Unit Resources" section below for links to these products!
features a reading exercise on the following topics:
- What are mixtures?
- Properties of mixtures
- Simple Distillation
- Fractional Distillation
features 16 review questions
that test student understanding in the form of short answer questions, matching and summary tables that cover all concepts found in the reading.
features a full color-coded answer key
for all review questions.
