Topic Mini-Research Real World Activity
Rainbow Fun

In Miss Jennifer's color activity we will be coloring a rainbow for the Weather Channel, who is doing a special presentation on rainbows.  The Weather Channel will present our rainbows on live television!  We will discuss the different colors of a rainbow.  Each of you will color your own rainbow.  After we have finished our rainbows the Weather Channel crew will visit our classroom where our rainbows will be displayed.  Have fun and be colorful!
Steps to Complete Color Real-World Activity

1.  First we will practice our colors.  We will need to visit the color link.
2.  One we have plenty of practice we will make our own rainbows.
3.  I will give you a picture of white paper.  We will color our rainbows using our handprints and paint.
4.  Next we will visit the link with Bud for more practice.
5.  Next we will paint one of our hands the color I call out.  We will then wash our hands and paint another color.  We will do this until our rainbow is complete.
