In this video, you’ll learn about mixtures and solutions and create your own fireworks in a jar!
Everything around you that maintains its form is a mixture.
Grab a few cups of water and add some spices from your kitchen.
Examples: Salt, sugar, basil, pepper, baking powder, food coloring.
Which ones make a solution and which ones make a mixture? Then try again with some more solid things. Try cereal, pieces of fruit, a small piece of bread. Do any of these turn into solutions? Is there something you think you could do to turn the mixture into a solution? Such as stirring it or heating it?
