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 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 instructional activity, 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.
In this algebra worksheet, students solve word problems related to mixtures. They figure out cost per kg, concentration of chemicals and percent of mixtures. There are 12 problems with an answer key.
In 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 experiment with mixtures of matter. In this matter instructional activity, students investigate which liquids form a solution when mixed together and which do not. Students also identify which solids can be separated from matter.
Students explore chemical cahnges and the effect of temperature on chemical mixturees, They make observations of the behavior and appearance of certain chemical mixtures and reactions.
Students experiment with solids and liquids. In this mixtures of matter lesson, students combine matter to form solutions. Students hypothesize, test, and analyze the data to draw conclusions. The lesson can be extended by having students create and work with oobleck.
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.
In this elements, compounds and mixtures worksheet, learners 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.
Students 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. Students 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 instructional 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.
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 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 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.
