Title: Fall Foliage and the Changing Color of Leaves
Description: As an extension lesson with any photosynthesis lesson, this activity explores pigments within plant leaves. While throughout most of the year, leaves appear only green, but as autumn and winter approaches, leaves began to change colors and reds, yellows, purples, and browns become more prevalent than green. This phenomenon is explained using the PowerPoint presentation and hands on chromatography to separate pigments present within leaves. This lesson would be an appropriate companion with the paper chromatography lesson also in DLC requests.  
Key Words: photosynthesis, pigments, chlorophyll 
Grade Level: 6th, 7th, 8th
