Second graders investigate how a rainbow is made. They listen to the book "What Makes a Rainbow," and discuss how a rainbow is created. Students then conduct an experiment involving pouring a cup of milk into a bowl and adding drops of red, yellow, and blue food coloring into the milk, and squeezing a drop of dish soap into the center of the bowl. They discuss their observations and the results of the experiment.

Lesson Planet has been a great site for me because I teach grades K-6 and some of my lessons are not easy to teach. It has made it possible for me to come with lessons students can understand. This is one of my favorite resources to pull and review from. Thank you Lesson Planet!
