Suspensions, Colloids and Solutions
Sal introduces students to mixtures and solutions. He starts out by explaining that homogenous mixtures, such as homogenized milk, are mixtures that are even and consistent throughout. He goes on to illustrate how the particle sizes in a variety of mixtures determine how homogenous that mixture will be.

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.

Give your class a colorful and tasty representation of the components of the mixture that we call air. Pop a few batches of popcorn in four different colors, one to represent each gas: nitrogen, oxygen, argon, and carbon dioxide. The unit that this activity is part of contains lessons and additional resources that can be used with primary scientists; however, the concepts relating to different gases may be difficult for them to grasp.
