Align four color transparencies, each one a single color (cyan, magenta, yellow, and black), and see a beautiful full color image.
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 on page 9 of the PDF, learners make their own paint using chalk as a pigment and glue and water as binders. This activity introduces learners to special mixtures called suspensions.
In "Chemistry is Colorful" learners explore different materials through paper chromatography.
In this activity, learners overlap the three primary colors to see how all other colors are made.
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 work in groups of four to explore light. Learners create new colors from the primary colors of light from flashlights covered in theatrical gels or cellophane.
In this activity, learners perform an experiment to find out what determines a flower's color.
This is an activity (located on page 3 of the PDF under Butterfly Wings Activity) about how visible light is affected by tiny nanoscale structures, producing iridescence on butterfly wings, soap bubbl
In this art meets chemistry activity, early learners discover the almost magical absorbent properties of salt while creating ethereal watercolor paintings.
This is an online exhibit about color perception. Learners set a random background color and then try to mix red, blue, and green light to match.
In this chemistry activity (page 5 of the PDF), learners will use milk and a few other basic ingredients to create a chemical change to make a color wheel.
In this family or group activity, learners conduct a chromatography experiment to reveal the colors that leaves "hide" under their green pigments.
