Color Burst


Math, Science & Technology

Grade Levels

Elementary, 3rd Grade, 4th Grade, 5th Grade


In this experiment, students explore how colors react in water and other solvents. Students work in groups to observe, investigate, measure, record data and communicate their results in the form of graphs/charts and narration presented to the class. Directions and questions are provided to guide student work. A link to the Wondernet site where students learn how color is used in chemistry is used as another online resource for gathering information about chromatography. The assessment offers students an opportunity to resolve a problem by applying what they have learned from this lesson.

Lesson Plan

Purpose: To gain experience in asking questions and conducting inquiry by exploring the separation of colors in water and other solvents; to communicate and share findings of student investigations.
