Hello and happy Thursday!
It was quite a packed day as my spectacular students completed their FIRST lab of the year! Congratulations to them for completing that task!
I would say our lab was quite successful today. Students completed 5 of 6 stations (one station – filtration – was done as a demo at the front of the room).
Here’s a list of the stations we completed:
Station 1: Magnetic Separation
Station 2: Density
Station 3: Mechanical Separation
Station 4: Sifting
Station 5: Filtration (Demo by Mrs. Barton)
Station 6: Chromatography
We began the day by making a foldable lab booklet to complete as students rotated to each station. That piece can be found here: Mixtures Lab – Foldable & Synthesis Slips
Next they glued in their pre-lab questions (completed yesterday in-class/homework) on page 11. That worksheet can be found here:Mixtures and Separation Pre-Lab Questions
Finally they glued in lab synthesis questions and completed those after the lab was complete. That document can be found above with the Mixtures Lab Foldable & Synthesis Slips document.
Our Interactive Notebook spread for today should look like this:
Here are a few pictures of my students’ separating skills!
Don’t forget! Tomorrow we will take Quiz 1.3 on heterogeneous mixtures and parts of an element square. ALSO – if you haven’t yet taken Quiz 1.2 Form B, that must be completed by Monday 9/23.
See you tomorrow!
