This paper presents simple approach for systematic chemistry learning of amino acids’ qualitative experiments. In this laboratory practice, students are requested to perform qualitative tests for certain amino acids and be able to distinguish them according to their color reactions. The chemical knowledge and concepts of amino acids reactions with certain reagents are deeply discussed to promote students' readiness for their future career as chemists and lab technicians. In this approach, all written laboratory activities are linked with colored reactions’ illustrations to facilitate better understanding of all laboratory tests.
