Science L.O: To explore how different mixtures can be separated.
The individual substances in a mixture can be separated using different methods, depending on the type of mixture. These methods may include filtration, evaporation, magnetic attraction and sieving.
Activity 1: Open up the file below titled 'Separating Mixtures'. Read through each page carefully to find out more! On page 7 there is a matching activity for you to complete. It is important that you read all of the information carefully as it will help you with Activity 2.
Activity 2: Open up the file below titled 'Separating Mixtures: Activity'. You can choose to complete page 1 (Bronze), page 2 (Silver) OR page 3 (Gold) depending on your level of confidence (do not complete more than one page). For this activity, you will need to decide which type of separation (filtration, evaporation, magnetic attraction or sieving) would be the best method for separating the two substances in each mixture. Try to draw a diagram for each to help explain what you would need to do. REMEMBER, the information you read for Activity 1 will support you in this activity.
At a time where we all find ourselves indoors for the most of the day, we should bare in mind how important daily exercise is for our health and wellbeing, particularly our mental health. If you are able to, take your device somewhere with plenty of space (even the garden on a nice sunny day) or clear some space in front of your computer and follow along with Joe Wicks for a 30 minute workout. I will definitely be doing the same!
