Mixtures and solutions are different; one can be separated fairly easily and the other cannot. This hands-on experiment was written specifically for learners with visual impairments or blindness. They will use lemonade and trail mix to represent solutions and mixtures and then attempt to take them apart or feel how each is different and why. 
In this mixtures instructional activity, students fill in 7 blanks, determine if 4 statements are true or false, match 7 terms with the appropriate definitions, and solve 2 problems. These include topics such as homogeneous and heterogeneous mixtures, and the comparison of mixtures and substances.
Students compare and contrast the properties of substances and mixtures. In this chemistry lesson, students simulate spontaneous mixing by performing a short class activity. They differentiate heterogeneous and homogeneous mixtures.
Fourth graders explain and describe what a mixture is, distinguish between the two types of mixtures (which are heterogeneous vs.homogenous) and are able to create and appropriately label mixtures.
This is a great worksheet with an infographic to assist your students in categorizing matter into mixtures and non-mixtures. Information is given about the metric system of measurement. Your young students match 13 terms with their definitions, identify homogeneous and heterogeneous mixtures and identify elements and compounds. Students make observations in the lab at 3 stations and record their discoveries of mixtures, elements and compounds.
Middle school scientists compare and contrast heterogeneous and homogeneous mixtures. They differentiate solutions, colloids, and suspensions by examining samples of each. Note that the bulk of the lesson plan directs you how to incorporate a physical science video which is not available. Nonetheless, the activities and discussion involved are worthwhile if you don't mind sifting through the write-up.
In this review of general science worksheet, students classify examples of matter as mixtures or substances, homogeneous or heterogeneous mixtures, or elements or compounds. Students also convert several examples using the standard units of the metric system.
In this mixture learning exercise, students fill two test tubes with water and add starch to one and salt to the other. They stir the solutions and observe their appearance. They answer four questions about their mixtures and determine if they are homogeneous or heterogeneous mixtures.
High schoolers incorporate their knowledge of physical properties to separate a mixture of four ingredients to encourage the mastery of several laboratory techniques. They then design their own laboratory for the experiment.
Ninth graders participate in classroom discussions, demonstrations and hands-on laboratory activities about pure substances and mixtures with a focus on common household materials. They investigate: What is a pure substance? What is a mixture? How difficult is it to obtain pure substances?
Students differentiate the two types of mixtures. In this chemistry lesson, students create their own mixture and classify them according to their type. They simulate steel production with the help of a guest speaker.
High schoolers examine the differences between elements, compounds and mixtures. Using diagrams, they compare and contrast atoms and molecules and describe various chemical reactions. They distinguish the differences between ionic and covalent bonds and give examples of physical and chemical changes in matter.
In this solutions, suspension and colloid worksheet, students complete a lab experiment in order to determine if a given mixture is a solution, suspension or colloid. They are given six vials and they record their observations of each and can test three for the Tyndall effect to help determine if the mixture is a colloid.
Although the images on the opening slide are not displayed, the slideshow itself is informative, orderly, and eye-catching. A graphic organizer sorts matter into its classifications: elements, compounds, and mixtures. Examples are given of each. Five slides on sulfur seem out of place, but can be hidden should you choose not to include them in this otherwise outstanding PowerPoint.
Students explore concrete. In this physical science and computer research lesson, students work in groups to answer specific  questions about concrete. Each group of students completes a different worksheet with a specific subtopic. Students share their research with the whole class. Lesson plan structure, website lists, and specific topic questions are good examples of the "jigsaw" cooperative learning instructional procedure that could be adapted for many content areas.
In this substances, changes and properties activity, learners answer 5 questions about elements, homogeneous and heterogeneous mixtures, chemical and physical changes and intensive and extensive properties.
In this basics of science worksheet, students review the metric system, the difference between homogenous and heterogenous mixtures, the scientific method, and science lab first aid. This worksheet has 15 short answer, 43 fill in the blank, and 7 matching questions.
In this matter worksheet, students review the characteristics of elements, compounds, and mixtures. Students identify matter changes as either physical or chemical. Students fill in the periodic table. This worksheet has 2 graphic organizer, 70 fill in the blank, 2 true or false, and 10 short answer questions.
In this chemistry review worksheet, learners answer questions about the periodic table, and differentiate between properties, states of matter, physical changes.
Immerse your chemistry class in solutions! They melt and compare the mixtures that make up margarine, separate black ink into its component colors, distill ocean saltwater, and practice chromatography with plant pigments. There are eight activities in all, along with 11 assessment questions. This resource is a valuable addition to your chemistry curriculum collection.
