A shelf has collapsed in the school storeroom and several of the containers  full of dried materials have been tipped out and mixed together. The caretaker, intending to help, has made things worse by sweeping up all the remains, including the odd dead spider, and putting them into a box. Ask: Can you use your science knowledge to help sort out the mess?

Your teacher will model the experiment with ideas from you and then you will need to write up the experiment like we did before. Again, you could write in your book or use the 2Do set on Purple Mash. Don’t forget to HAND IT IN. If you write it in your book you need to include: Title, Prediction, Equipment, Method, Results, Conclusion.

Can you make your own mixture and separate it out?

Please send us a photo of you can!
