This kit, designed for young learners, teaches about matter, the various forms it can take and the differences between them. This experiment kit allows learners to examine three different solids (sand, iron filings, and salt) to determine various similarities and differences in physical properties. Magnifiers, water, and magnets are included to aid in their exploration. Finally, using their previous observations, they will develop and execute a method to separate a mixture of the three solids.

Kit Includes:

  • 50g Sand
  • 50g Salt
  • 50g Iron Filings
  • 200g 3 Part Mixture in equal volumes
  • Magnets
  • Plastic Cups
  • Magnifiers
  • Teacher (or Parent's!) Manual
  • Safety Data Sheet

The Science at Home series by Innovating Science is designed to offer engaging activities and educational content to young learners at home. Kits incorporate applied math and science principles into homeschool-based projects. Teachers in pre-K, elementary, and secondary classrooms use science education kits and products alongside science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) curriculum to demonstrate STEM concepts and real-world applications through hands-on activities. Science education projects include a broad range of activities, such as practical experiments in engineering, aeronautics, robotics, energy, chemistry, physics, biology, and geology. Innovating Science products, manufactured by Aldon Corporation, include educational kits for the chemistry, life science, green chemistry, advanced placement chemistry, and forensic fields.
