Separating Mixtures

In our study of elements, we are learning about mixtures and compounds. In a fun lab with Mrs. Deeley, we explored the many ways to separate items in a mixture. We learned about magnetism, filters, solubility... This lab was fun because we got to figure out for ourselves how to separate the sawdust, sand, salt, and iron filings in our mixtures.
