Paint Color Samples Nicely Done
Non permanent markers (Mr. Sketch markers work best.)
White coffee filters
Cups of water
Black pipe cleaners
Chromatography Science Experiment
1. Choose one marker to experiment with first. (black and brown are most exciting!)
2. Take one coffee filter. Put it on a newspaper or some kind of material to protect your table. Draw a thick circle around the center of the coffee filter where the ridged part meets the flat center. Use a pencil to write the color of the marker being used right in the center. (You’ll want to know what the original color was and the pencil won’t smear and will remain intact after the experiment.) Collect black markers from different brands. Complete the experiment with each. Compare the results.
Record your observations by creating a picture or chart showing what you discovered.
Make a list of more questions you came up with as you completed this experiment.
