Teacher Idea: Autumn Colors Leaf Experiment

Where do the beautiful colors of fall leaves come from? They are there in leaves all along, they’re just being masked by the green chlorophyll each leaf uses to make food during the warm, sunny months. Using chromatography, your students can separate the pigment molecules in fresh leaves, revealing some of the leaves “hidden” colors. Here’s the items you’ll need (shop for items below or visit one of our stores):

•  Several Leaves from Different Trees
•  Small Glass Containers
•  Rubbing Alcohol
•  Paper Coffee Filters
•  Shallow Aluminum Pans
•  Hot Tap Water
•  Aluminum Foil
•  Scissors
•  Tape
•  Marker
•  Sticky Notes
•  Plastic Spoon
•  Timer
