Advanced chemistry students in Mr. Pellerin's class are identifying metals by observing the color they produce when meeting with flame. Students were then given a mystery metal after observing the various flames and were asked to identify it by comparing its color to their observations of the given metals. 

The colors were often bright and beautiful, as shown in these pictures, but were actually sometimes very difficult to compare with the mystery metal!
