Muck, Mess and Mixtures

Friday, September 20th, 2019

Our topic this term is Muck, Mess & Mixtures, and it involves a lot of science!

Since the beginning of term, we’ve been learning all about the different states of matter (solid, liquid and gas). We learnt that the particles are all bunched together in a solid, are further apart in a liquid and are even further apart in a gas! We then learnt about reversible changes and thought about how to separate a muddy mixture. We decided on using different pieces of equipment to separate the mixture, and see which made the liquid the most translucent.

We found that the funnel and filter paper made the water the most translucent because the paper has the tiniest holes in that let the water through and trap the mud. And we loved getting muddy in the process!
