SOME SUGGESTIONS FOR CHILDREN

All of you have seen a rainbow in the sky at least once in your lives, and probably stopped to admire it.

But perhaps some rainbows can enter our homes, or little fragments of rainbow.

 

Wait for a nice sunny day and then search for rainbows made by different objects in your home.

They disappear very quickly, so you might never have seen them before.

Observe one closely:

> What makes the rainbow?

> When does it appear?

> When does it disappear?

 

Observe your rainbow on different days.

Does it always behave the same way every day?

 

This suggestion is part of Investigating natural phenomena
