Instructor: Josh Corbat

Josh has taught Earth Science and Physical Science at the High School level and holds a Master of Education degree from UNC-Chapel Hill.

Looking for new ways to teach about mixtures and solutions? This lesson contains several ideas to help make these substances more interesting, including a few that require very few materials and little preparation.

The Importance of Getting Hands-on with Mixtures & Solutions

Students can often recite the definitions to the terms mixture and solution, but sometimes the concepts are a bit hard to grasp. It's important to make learning meaningful for students, and providing them with hands-on activities is a great way to do just that! The activity ideas below are engaging and flexible enough that they can be modified to fit the needs of your students. Remember that with water-based activities, you often are left with a bit of a mess. Make sure your students know they'll be cleaning up the classroom when they're finished!
