Separating Mixtures - Filtration

Through our topic of ‘Separating Mixtures’ we been examining the process of filtration. We discussed examples of filtration in our own lives and how filtration can be important for us. We explored the different tools we could use to filter dirty water. We used filter paper, sand, cotton wool and stones and discussed which ones worked most effectively to filter the dirt out of the water.

We thoroughly enjoyed this experiment and we hope you enjoy the pictures of our successful filters.
