What is a mixture?

Which materials dissolve in water?

When do we use a filter?

Read Mixing and Separating to learn that a mixture can be made of solids, liquids, or gases. Discover how we use mixtures in our lives and how we can separate mixtures using filters and magnets.

Books in the Changing Materials series look at how materials can be changed in various ways. Each book examines materials we commonly encounter and explores their properties through practical and familiar examples. Investigation spreads give readers the chance to find out for themselves how materials can be changed.
