Lesson 6: Plant Chromatography Botany

Date: Aug. 29, 2016

Welcome to Lesson 6 of Metro Parent’s Virtual Camp!

We’re fortunate in Michigan. Every fall, the leaves explode into tons of amazing reds, oranges and yellows. But why do those leaves change color? The answers are just beneath the surface of all that bright green! A little “plant chromatography” investigation helps peel back the layers. Plus “dig” into some botany science with piles of toys, books and factoids, plus fun outdoor southeast Michigan spots to learn even more.
