What’s better than painting a rainbow? Painting a rainbow city! This lesson is a hit with young students. Not only do they get to mix paint, they get to use their imaginations to create the most beautiful rainbow cities they can think of. As a bonus, you can introduce them to the science behind how rainbows are made. I like to save this lesson for springtime when they might be able to bring first-hand experiences of seeing rainbows to class.
