  • Home/School Connections

    There are many ways to extend your child's science experiences at home and to have fun together. We have developed a Home/School Connection for four investigations in the Mixtures and Solutions module. These require little or no materials from home.

    Investigation 1: Separating Mixtures—Make an oobleck and explore its properties.
    Investigation 2: Reaching Saturation—Make your own silly putty.
    Investigation 3: Concentration—Grow crystals.
    Investigation 4: Fizz Quiz—Experiment with baking soda.
