What is a Mixture?

What's your favourite part of trail mix? Some people like the raisins and dried  fruit, while others prefer the different nuts. Trail mix is a good example of a mixture.
A mixture is a combination of two or more substances that keep their original  properties. The raisins, dried fruit, and nuts are all mixed together, but they each have their orginal properties.
 The nuts, raisins, and dried fruit are the same in the trail mix as they are on their own.

If you were to add another cup of dried fruit to a cup of trail mix, you would still have trail mix. In a mixture, the different parts don't have to be in the same proportions.
