The nineteen activities within this pack investigate colour and link to many topics at primary level including: light and sight, plants, properties of materials and habitats. Designed to demonstrate key ideas and concepts and to spark an interest in science and engineering, they could be used in class or within a science week or club.
The activities promote investigative work and communication skills and include: splitting white light, ink chromatography, how we see colour, transport of water in plants, creating a red cabbage indicator, comparing the density of liquids and camouflage in caterpillars. Teachers' notes are provided within the pack and include concise summaries of the science involved in the investigations.
A Welsh language version of the pack is also available to download, which provides a Welsh student section.
