Lab Overview

Our current lab experiment in science class is to mix together five different substances and separate them. This heterogeneous mixture is made up of aluminum pieces, wood shavings, iron filings, regular salt, and sand. These materials will be shaken up in a plastic bag and then we will attempt to successfully separate all items. We will try to end up with the same quantity and form of the material at the end of the project as we were given when we started the project.

We will be writing back daily with observations, thoughts, and questions. At the end of the experiment we will provide a detailed analysis and conclusion.
