This afternoon we have been learning about using different scientific processes to separate materials. We used sieving, filtering and evaporation to separate a solution of gravel, sand, water and salt. We worked together in groups to decide which order we would separate the materials and what equipment we would need to carry out the investigation. We now know how filter paper acts as a mini sieve the separate very tiny particles from a solution.
