Marvellous Mixtures in 5 Red.

Today in 5 Red we completed an experiment to separate different mixtures using a range of materials. We used salt, sugar, sand, flour, peas, rice and raisins. We used a sieve, filter paper, magnets, paper clips and a funnel to separate the mixtures. Take a look at the pictures below.

  1. For Blue table, the most succesful mixture was the flour and paperclips. We just had to put the magnet in and we got all the paperclips out. The hardest one was the raisins and salt, but we were able to separate the mixture, so it was successful. I enjoyed this experiment. I wonder what will be next.
