Continuing our Mixtures unit during Science we tried to make a mixture using Epsom Salts to make Crystals. Unfortunately, our first attempt was a failure. It probably helps to read the instructions properly. However, this is what Science is about, experimentation and trial and error. We discovered that we didn't put enough salt in out mixtures so they didn't crystallise as they should have. So we decided to try again.
We talked about getting the measurements correct and what could happen or what could go wrong if we get measurements wrong. This time we measured very carefully and made sure that we put the correct amount of salt into the water and mixed it carefully. We are yet to see the results but hopefully they have worked :-)
