New! Mixtures and Solutions
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 worksheet, 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.
I'm All Mixed Up
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.
Homogenous and Heterogeneous 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.
Classification of Matter
This is a great activity 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.
Pure Substances and Mixtures
Students compare and contrast the properties of substances and mixtures. In this chemistry activity, students simulate spontaneous mixing by performing a short class activity. They differentiate heterogeneous and homogeneous mixtures.
My Type of Mixture
For this mixture worksheet, 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.
Separation of Mixture
Students 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.
Chapter 16 Review- General Science
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.
The Pure, The Mixture, The Unknown
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. For 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.
Differentiate Elements, Compounds, and Mixtures
Students 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.
Solutions, Suspensions, & Colloids Lab
In this solutions, suspension and colloid worksheet, learners 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.
Recognition and Classification of Mixtures
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.
Classification of Matter
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 plan, 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.
Substances, Changes and Properties Review
In this substances, changes and properties worksheet, students answer 5 questions about elements, homogeneous and heterogeneous mixtures, chemical and physical changes and intensive and extensive properties.
Basics of Science
In this basics of science instructional activity, students review the metric system, the difference between homogenous and heterogenous mixtures, the scientific method, and science lab first aid. This instructional activity has 15 short answer, 43 fill in the blank, and 7 matching questions.
Elements, Compounds and Mixtures
In this elements, compounds and mixtures worksheet, students answer 7 questions about heterogeneous and homogeneous mixtures and pure elements and compounds found in the house.
Students classify different mixtures. In this mixtures lesson plan, students determine samples to be suspensions, colloids, or solutions and compare homogeneous and heterogeneous mixtures.
