This lab activity takes very little prep work and will introduce your students into the wonderful world of paper chromatography. The background information discusses why and how paper chromatography is used in the laboratory, and the step-by-step procedure will ensure that your students (and you!) know exactly how to carry out the experiment.
This lab activity includes:
-Teacher’s Prep Guide
-Post-Lab answer key
My students cannot wait to do this activity when they hear from their friends what we are doing in chemistry class!
