Separating mixtures

Today in our Science Lesson we were learning about separating mixtures.  We conducted a small experiment were we had to try and separate salt from water.

 

We learnt that salt is soluble and  does not disappear. We tried to use filtering to separate the mixture but it did not work because when we tasted the filtered mixture we could still taste salt – YYYYUUUUUUUKKKKKKKK!

 

We now know that evaporation is the best we to separate salt and water.

Take a look at our pictures.
