Activity Overview


It's important for students to understand the differences between elements, compounds, and mixtures, and provide examples of where they appear in real life. This allows students to better distinguish models and the things that make up everything around us! In this activity, students will create a model to represent an element, a compound, and a mixture and then provide examples of each using an image from Photos for Class or creating an illustration.
