Yummy Science : Mixture vs Solution 

WE’VE BEEN LEARNING ABOUT MATTER: SOLIDS, LIQUIDS, AND GASES.  MOST RECENTLY, WE ZOOMED IN ON MIXTURES VS. SOLUTIONS.  KIDS LEARNED ABOUT SOLUTES AND SOLVENTS MAKING SOLUTIONS.  IN THIS CASE, ONCE THE 2 ARE MIXED TOGETHER, YOU CANNOT SEPARATE OUT THE SOLID AND LIQUID WHEREAS IN THE MIXTURE, WE COULD.

STUDENTS BUILT THEIR SCHEMA ABOUT THE TOPIC, MADE PREDICTIONS, OBSERVED, AND THEN EXPLAINED THEIR RESULTS.

WE ADDED GREEN FOOD COLORING FOR FUN BECAUSE IT WAS SAINT PATRICK’S DAY!

EACH TABLE OF 4 STUDENTS GOT THEIR OWN BOWL, WHISK, INSTANT PUDDING BOX, SERVING CUPS, SERVING SPOON, PAPER TOWELS, AND A GREEN SPOON TO EAT WITH.

THE KIDS DID ALL OF THE WORK EXCEPT FOR POURING IN THE 2 CUPS OF MILK.

MOST OF THE KIDS ENJOYED IT AND WANT TO MAKE IT AGAIN.  THE FACT THAT A STOVE IS NOT REQUIRED, MAKES IT POSSIBLE!
