Outdoor Chromatography

This afternoon, P6/7 learned about the scientific explanation for why leaves change colour in autumn.  We collected as many different colours of leaves as we could from our playground.   We separated the plant pigments using paper chromatography.  We expect to see different pigments on each piece of filter paper.  P6/7 – can you explain WHY?
