Let's get mixing in our KS2 Science adventures! We'll do experiments with solvents, solutes, and suspensions, trying to see which things mix together and which ones don't.
Mixtures happen when we combine things, like solids, liquids, or gases. Have you seen sugar disappear in water? That's because sugar (solute) dissolves in water (solvent), making a yummy solution! But not everything dissolves; sand stays grainy, making a suspension. The bits will settle at the bottom.
