Students got to observe salt, corn starch, mulch and water. They were joined by second and fourth graders. After observing, they discussed what would happen if they combined the items. They also made observations after mixing the ingredients together. Students then devised a plan to separate the four substances. They also mastered the concept of a mixture. Nishtha explained, "a mixture is a combination of two or more substances that can be separated easily." Mason thought, "I enjoyed helping the seconders learn about matter."
I hope you enjoy learning how the garden changes throughout the school year.
