Three-Day Children Find Out “What Makes a Rainbow?”

After reading “What Makes a Rainbow?” by Betty Schwartz, the children in Mrs. Fogg’s three-day class couldn’t wait to start creating.

Using several mediums such as finger paint, water color, and easel paint, the children were allowed to explore how different color combinations yield new colors. By mixing primary colors, the children were able to exercise scientific thinking: make predictions, observations and evaluations.

“We also dropped colored ice cubes into water alone and then mixed them together, teaching us cause and effect,” Fogg said. “Who knew three simple colors could be so much fun!”
