I Can See a Rainbow!
Why is the sky blue, and where to colors come from? Kids identify the colors of the rainbow, find the colors in a rainbow, then use color filters to find each color in white light. The instructional activity includes a rubric and six different activities that introduce learners to the color wheel, properties of light, the mnemonic Roy G.

What Color is Light?
Explore white light as it relates to rainbows with a lesson plan. Young scientists predict the color of light when viewed through various filter-colored papers. They view online video clips about light and solar energy, write in interactive science journals, and read aloud narrative and expository text for fluency and accuracy.

The Color Spectrum: How Does it Work?
Create models of the infrared, visible, and ultraviolet portions of the electromagnetic spectrum. Working in small groups, your class can investigate metric conversions calculations. They will find the length of the waves in nanometers, and then determine the size for the model of the spectrum if the scale is 1 nanometer equals 1 millimeter.

Pin the Preposition on the Rainbow
Your kids won't need luck to remember their prepositions after this St. Patty's Day- inspired lesson! The concept of prepositions is illustrated in a straight-forward manner. The class defines prepositions and prepositional phrases, and then they transfer their new knowledge to a board activity where they pin different words (like near, under, on, over, around) to the appropriate spot on the board using a rainbow as the point of reference.
