Splitting Colours – Chromotography

a simplified worksheet for students from 6 upwards to try to split the colours in felt pens.Comes with instructions and a brief conclusion for students to be introduced to the concept of science and the process of experiments.

Is editable to make easier or more difficult and if needed can be added to to make predictions or draw further conclusions. 
Hope it is useful! 

It has a list of resources needed so the students can complete the experiment in school and then take it home to try with their friends and family. Therefore taking English out of the classroom environment. 
It is tried and tested here in my school and the only problems i had were not providing enough filter ( coffee) paper for them to try colours as after they had tried one or two colours they wanted to see what colours made every colour in all the felt pens.

For the price of a cup of tea!

If you liked the item please leave a comment for other teachers, if you REALLY liked it you can shout me a cup of tea! (It's cheaper and I don't drink coffee 😉


This is also free there, but i have the full lesson on this website as well
