In this separation of a mixture, students experiment with salt and sand and design an experiment to separate a mixture of the two.
Fifth graders design an experiment in which they separate mixtures. In this mixtures lesson, 5th graders define mixtures, solutions, solutes, and solvents. They watch a video, complete worksheets, and perform an experiment to separate the parts of a mixture.
For this mixture word problem worksheet, students read problems and determine the correct amount of mixture needed for the given situation.  This two-page worksheet contains 10 multi-step problems.  Answers are provided on the last page.
Mix things up in your physical science class by introducing mixtures. The three types are defined: suspension, colloid, and solution. It all depends on the size and type of the involved particles. With attractive animation and an engaging narrative, viewers will be fully immersed in mixtures. Consider following the lesson with the making of a macaroni salad lunch!
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.
For this elements, compounds and mixtures worksheet, students read a poem that gives details about elements, compounds and mixtures. They answer six questions about the poem which compares the substances.
Students practice creating mixtures out of colored beads.
Learners observe and compare an element, compound and mixture. In this elements, compounds and mixtures lesson plan, student observe taco salad, a beaker of salt and a helium balloon. Students make lists comparing and contrasting the three samples. They identify the 3 samples as an element, compound and mixture. Learners experiment with nuts, bolts and washers to represent elements, compounds and mixtures.
Students solve problems containing mixture and motion using one variable equation. In this algebra lesson, students combine different strategies to solve word problems and apply it to the real world.
Students experiment with solutions.  In this mixtures and solutions science activity, students work in groups of three to perform an experiment. Students place a sugar cube in three glasses, and observe and record the different rates at which the cube dissolves depending on the variables.
Young scholars 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.
For 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.
Students develop a method to separate different types of mixtures. In this chemistry lesson, students model the steps in the scientific method. They perform the experiment and analyze data.
In this elements, compounds, and mixtures worksheet, students answer true and false questions that ask about the properties of mixtures. Students match the technique for separating a mixture with the substances.
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.
In this mixture problem worksheet, students solve nine mixture word problems.  These problems include situations of preparing solutions are calculating percent concentrations.
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. 
Students compare and contrast the properties of substances and mixtures. For this chemistry lesson, students simulate spontaneous mixing by performing a short class activity. They differentiate heterogeneous and homogeneous mixtures.
Students experiment with filtering, evaporating, dissolving materials, and recognizing physical properties of common substances.   In this culminating matter activity, students manipulate supplies to try and separate a variety of substances from the mixture.
