This lab focuses on the colors of the visible spectrum and what colors of light are best absorbed and what color is reflected (green) by plants. It really helps students in understanding why plants ARE green and why they would not grow under green light, but do grow under red, orange, blue, and violet light. Students really enjoy the virtual lab and are surprised when they see how little plants grow under green light!
This lab accompanies the virtual lab from Glencoe (McGraw-Hill) http://www.glencoe.com/sites/common_assets/science/virtual_labs/LS12/LS12.html
