PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Students will never look at colors the same way again. Create a wonderful memorable moment learning about color Chromatography.

Students will explore Leaf, Permanent Marker, and Wet Erase Marker Chromatography.

Students will explore what pigments are found in leaves.

Chromatography not only teaches color separation, but the solubility of different materials in liquids. Did you know the pigments in leaves are not very soluble in water!

Students will also focus on recording detailed observations.

At the end of the exploration students will display the results on bookmarks. They can use them or they could give them as gifts to parents, grandparents, etc. This activity is great during March is Reading Month, St. Patrick's Day, or Mother's Day.
