Crazy...mixed up...

Today we mixed! Students were given 8 different mixtures to make in class. They had to decided if the mixtures were solutions or not. If something dissolved, it was a solution. I would say the kids had fun doing this.
Of course, it wouldn't be safe if we didn't wear our goggles to do this experiment! :)




We also learned ANOTHER song! I told the kids we would sing a new song for every topic they learned this year...little did I know, I would become a songwriter! There just aren't too many songs out there about mixtures and solutions...in fact, I don't think there are any at all! So, here you go, the mixtures and solutions rap song! Enjoy!

I love my job!

  6. Do you mind sharing the worksheet with me as well? I am teaching my first lesson on science to my internship class and your blog has helped me so much! I had no idea how to teach physical properties and make it fun but after reading this I have so many ideas.
