Description:

In this activity (12th on the page), learners investigate their ability to discriminate (see) different colors. Learners arrange jars, each filled with water and different amounts of food coloring, in order from lightest to darkest. How good are they at seeing different colors? Variations for this activity include using different colors of food coloring, using more or less water to increase or decrease the difficulty, and testing different lighting conditions (dim vs. bright, for example).
