Separating processes!

This term Year 5 scientists are exploring the Properties and changes of Materials, we have added to our Year 4 learning of states of matter (solid, liquid and gas) by exploring how mixtures such as sand and water, oil and water and raisins in rice might be separated through processes including filtering, sieving, evaporating and decanting. We had fun using our scientific skills to observe, investigate and report our findings. We particularly loved seeing our overnight results of the water evaporating from the salt water mixture leaving salt particles behind.
