Activity Overview


There are different methods of separating mixtures, all of which use properties of the mixed substances, including filtering, evaporation, and distillation. In this activity, students will identify four methods of separating mixtures and indicate when the method should be used. This is a great way to introduce students to the different methods before stepping into the lab to complete their own separation experiments.
