During a picnic, sipping on a fizzy drink and munching on fruit salad is a delightful experience, isn’t it? Did you know that these food items are actually solutions and mixtures? In this video, Sabrina will cover the basics of mixtures and solutions. A mixture is anything made by combining two or more substances. When the solute is distributed evenly in a solvent, the resulting mixture is called a solution. Solutions can be formed with substances with different states. It’s important to note that a solution can be separated back into the initial substances. If we dissolve sand in water, they will form a mixture; if we dissolve sugar in water, they will form a solution. As said above, fizzy drinks and fruit salads are examples of solutions and mixtures.
This video satisfies the 5-PS1-4 requirement of fifth-grade science proficiency.
Students who demonstrate understanding can: 5-PS1-4. Conduct an investigation to determine whether the mixing of two or more substances results in new substances.
