Rainbows in March

We have been learning about colors, color mixing and the spectrum of light this month.

One morning we experimented with mixing colored water. We had large glasses filled with water dyed in the primary colors. We first mixed yellow and blue. I wish I caught a picture of their faces when it turned green. They were shocked and amazed!

Another day we practiced our cutting skills by making our own rainbow mosaic. They also got to practice matching and categorizing, which are excellent pre-reading skills. The rainbow is now hanging in our school, so they can continue to work on it as the inspiration hits.
