Separating Materials


This week, Class 4 have been investigating different ways of separating materials. Take a closer look at our experiments. We used a sieve, colander, garden sieve, magnets, funnel and filter paper. We also recognised that certain solids (soluble) would require evaporation in order to separate them from a liquid. The different combinations of mixtures were:

sand and water

sand, water and marbles

glitter and water

gravel, rice and water

sugar, sand and water

paper clips, rice and water
