Exploring the Properties of a Mixture
Ashbrook, Peggy
Science and Children, v45 n5 p18-19 Jan 2008
Children learn about properties of materials as they walk through a fabric store, help in the kitchen, or dig in the garden. Directed explorations in the classroom build on these early experiences. In the inquiry-based activity described here, students prepare to learn about wet and dry ingredients (liquids and solids) and how they mix together by exploring small amounts of substances and how to follow a procedure--something scientists do as they try to duplicate the results of an initial experiment.
