Separating Mixtures

We worked on separating mixtures in class this week. We took notes on mixtures, solutions and separating them. Then, using the Separating Mixtures Lab, we looked at the physical properties of sand, salt and iron so we could use them to find a way to most effectively separate them. Students designed their procedure based on their thoughts with their lab group.

After we looked at everyone's procedures, we talked through what we decided as a class would be the best way. 

In our interactive notebooks on the right side, we described and illustrated our final procedure. Here is an anchor chart on what we put in our interactive notebook. 

Sorry my anchor chart handwriting is not beautiful, yet, but I am working in it :)

I hope to get to do many more anchor charts with my students this year!
