Dive into the Difference Between Mixtures and Solutions 

This can be used as extension work and also lends the opportunity for students to think of other solutions and mixture examples. Ask students to describe mixtures and solutions they come across every day and what makes them different from each other. 

Scaffolding for Struggling Students

Bring students into a small guided group to review each definition of mixtures and solution. Within your small group, go through each question and give students time to reflect on what they understand and what they still need more practice with the concepts. Show students physical examples if needed.
