Online activity. Separating Mixtures. Students separate mixtures by selecting the order in which tools should be used. http://fossweb.schoolspecialty.com/delegate/ssi-foss-ucm/Contribution%20Folders/FOSS/multimedia/Mixtures_and_Solutions/separatingmixtures/index.html
My grade 8 science class learnt all about separating mixtures in a very fun lab this month. They got to observe or perform various tasks including distillation, filtration, evaporation, chromatography, and using magnets to separate metals. It was very interesting and there were some surprising results. Click here to see my blog for more junior high science activities!
