Lesson Plan: Separating Mixtures Science
This lesson plan includes the objectives and prerequisites of the lesson teaching students how to describe the separation of different mixtures using a range of different physical processes.
Students will be able to
- identify mixtures of substances with different physical properties,
- list and outline multiple separating techniques, including filtering, chromatography, evaporation, distillation, sieving, magnetism, freezing, melting, fractional distillation, decanting, and the uses of a separating funnel and a centrifuge,
- choose the appropriate separation techniques to separate different mixtures.
Students should already be familiar with
- physical changes,
- the difference between a mixture and pure substances.
