Exploring Bows and Bubbles
ACTIVITIES the Science Lady suggests for learning more about rainbows:
Create a science notebook with drawings of rainbows or spectrums (all the different colors of light) showing the colors in their proper order.
Go on a Spectrum Scavenger Hunt. Find something that is each color of the spectrum. Collect the seven items in a bag or draw pictures of them in your notebook. Then put them in the same order as they appear in the spectrum.
BUBBLE MIXTURE RECIPE
3/4 cup Joy or Dawn brand dishwashing liquid
1 tablespoon glycerin
Fill a clean one-gallon plastic milk jug almost to the top with water. Add the dishwashing liquid and glycerin. Cap the jug and shake to mix.
