Foliage findings – a leaf pigment lesson plan.

Leaf pigmentation lesson plan

This simple lab activity for elementary students introduces them to the knowledge that the plant pigments responsible for this dazzling display are hidden in leaves all year long, waiting to make their appearance in autumn.
