Classifications of the material listed in the question is indicated below against each substance.

Copper: Element

Copper chloride(CuCl2): Compound

Chex mix: I am not cleat what substance is this. However, the term mix indicates that it is some kind of mixture

Fog: Suspension, which is a type of mixture.

Water: Compound

Copper chloride (CuCl, aq): Solution. The suffix 'aq' indicates that it is a solution in water.

Iron: Element. However please note that the word iron is also used for loosely for some alloys of iron. Such alloys form homogeneous mixtures.

Sodium chloride: Compound

Sand: Heterogeneous mixtures

Vinegar: Solution

NaHCO3(Sodium Bicarbonate): Compound,

Glue: Glues can be of many different types. None of these are elements. All the glues used of sticking things together that have some liquids that must evaporate for the things to remain stuck, are mixtures.

Koolaid: This appears to be brand name of some product. I  am not aware of this product.

Sulfur: Element
