Mixtures and Properties

Mixtures are made up of two or more substances. In some mixtures, you can see the individual ingredients and take them back apart, such as in a salad. In others like a cake, the ingredients cannot be separated. Scientists use mixtures to make some really cool stuff. Use your scientific inquiry skills to learn all about mixtures and properties. This collection features videos and interactive activities that support the Mixtures and Properties backpack family activities.
