JAM Session + Reindeer Snot 12/19/2020

Regular price $5.00

From the time leaves first appear in spring to the time they shed, most leaves are green.  Then, you notice they start turning to different hues of yellow and orange.  Some even turn a brilliant red or purple.  Why does this happen? In this activity, we will explore the science behind leaf colors.  You will learn what chemicals give leaves their colors and why they change.  You will also devise a simple experiment to extract these special chemicals, called pigments, from leaves.
