Compare concentration and saturation
with mixtures and solutions.
(5.S.BPS.P.5.1)
District Standard on Report Card

* Include appropriate Science and
Engineering Practices and skills
listed below
  • A mixture is created when 2 or more materials are combined together.
  • A solution is a special mixture when one material dissolves into another.
  • A solution becomes more concentrated by adding more solute to the solvent.
  • A solution becomes saturated when you add more solute than can be dissolved by the solvent.
