To Do:

  1. Younger students can go outside and blow bubbles.  Try to imagine that each bubble is like a feather on the hummingbird.  Do you see all the colors that are reflected from the bubbles?
  2. Perform the rainbow experiment. Prepare a glass of water and place a small mirror inside.  Go into a darkened room.  Shine a flashlight on the glass towards the mirror.  Do you see the rainbow? Rainbows display the colors red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet in this respective order. Their formation can be caused by other factors as well such as mist, dew, and spray. When light strikes the surface of a water droplet, it changes speed thus causing it to bend. It is refracted as it enters the water and then refracts again as it leaves the droplet. The outcome is light being reflected in varying angles, creating a rainbow. Light travels in varying waves. When light refracts, the different colors bend in different amounts as well. This is the reason why we see different colors in a spectrum as we see a rainbow.
  3. Younger students can draw and color a rainbow in the correct order: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet.
