Many years ago i purchased such material from Edmund Scientific. 
They had several versions, each changing temperature over a different 
range.  It was a fairly effective demonstration.  You can compare 
narrow and broad leaves, dissected leaves, etc.  I think these are 
liquid crystal materials, of the sort used in the fever thermometers 
you stick on your forehead.
