I See a Rainbow
Grade Level(s): K
By: Amy Koch, Kindergarten Teacher

The children will learn color recognition and it also good for experiments with temperature change and what it does to water. Weather talks also.

Objectives:

The children will learn color recognition and it also good for experiments with temperature change and what it does to water. Weather talks also.

Materials:

Plan:

  1. Read the story A Rainbow of My Own by Don Freeman. Talk about the colors and how the children think a rainbow forms.
  2. Talk about making their own rainbow. Ask the children to brainstorm how many colors they would use. This can be all the colors of the rainbow, less, or more.
  3. For each color of the rainbow, have a clear pitcher of water ready and available.
  4. Have the children take turns adding drops of coloring to the water. Count as each drop is put in. (You can mix if you want to make secondary colors - good lesson also.)
  5. Pour water into ice cube trays. Place in freezer.
  6. Talk about how the water was a liquid. What do they think will happen to the water?
  7. While freezing, we read the two Magic School Bus Books and write a sentence about the child's own rainbow and illustrate.
  8. After the cubes are frozen, pop them out. The children can play and observe them melting, some want to eat them, etc... We usually watch some melt together and see what happens.
