Chemistry Mixtures and Separation | Paper and Digital
Learn about solutions, suspensions, emulsions, and how they are separated with this collection of experiments, drawing activities, and lessons as part of your classroom chemistry unit. Everything you need is included except for some materials to experiment with (listed below).
This hands-on product includes:
- three complete lesson plans. They come with everything you need to experiment with solutions, suspensions and emulsions (and how to separate them) with the exception of actual physical materials which are listed below.
- : homogeneous mixtures, heterogeneous mixtures, suspensions, solutions, emulsions, solutes, solvents, saturation, dissolving, soluble and insoluble.
- : air (wind), water, magnets, filters, evaporation, sieves, decanting, distillation.
- student pages and handouts.
- answer keys and suggested answers.
- photographs of student examples.
- a set of task cards that are in colour, ink-saving, and available to view in Google Slides.
- several short quizzes to assess the understanding of vocabulary from these lessons.
To do the experiments you will need several jars or cups, access to water, and solids from home that you can test. This could include lemon juice, water, salt, sugar, baking soda, pepper, gravy mix, baking powder, and sand. We also recommend measuring cups, sieves, coffee filters, an electric fan, and magnets.
