In this chemistry activity, learners use thin layer chromatography to determine the molecular composition of different markers.
In this experiment, learners separate different types of molecules in marker inks (using a technique called "thin layer chromatography").
In this fun, hands-on autumn activity, learners experiment to discover whether the colored substances in leaves can be separated from the leaves.
In this activity, learners will discover what colors are in different markers, and may be surprised at the results.
With a coffee filter, a black marker, and a cup of water, discover the secret colors hidden in black ink.
In this activity, learners separate the components of Gatorade using a home-made affinity column.
In this activity, learners will explore how water affects marker on filter paper. Learners will use science process skills such as making observations and predictions as they explore color.
In this two-part activity, learners will extract their own DNA from their cheek cells and learn how DNA is analyzed and used to solve crimes.
In this activity on page 5 of the PDF (Plants—The Green Machines), learners use chromatography to separate and identify pigments within various leaves.
In this activity, learners explore materials through paper chromatography.
Learners observe different light sources, outdoors and indoors, using prism glasses (diffraction glasses) and color filters.
In this activity, learners perform an experiment that models a chromatography-like process called electrophoresis, a process used to analyze DNA.
In this activity (page 3 of the PDF), learners will observe a physical change.
Learners analyze mixtures of dyes using filter paper chromatography. They place spots of the different dyes at the bottom of a piece of filter paper, and hang the paper to touch the surface of water.
In this family or group activity, learners conduct a chromatography experiment to reveal the colors that leaves "hide" under their green pigments.
Learners use chromatography to separate and analyze the mixture of pigments in leaves. Use this activity to discuss photosynthesis as well as why leaves change color in autumn.
