Separating Mixtures Experiment

To extend our learning on separating mixtures we conducted multiple mini experiments. Children had to decide on a method to separate their given ingredient, and record observations through the separation process. We found that tea leaves and flour could not be separated, however rice and paper clips could with filter paper or a sieve. Interestingly, we discussed how salt could be separated from water through evaporation.
