Students will make rainbows using torn construction paper.
By Andrea Mulder-Slater
What You Need:
- construction paper (ideally: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet)
- white paper
- containers for paper
What You Do:
We all know that the colors of a rainbow are as follows:
However, our pad of construction paper was limited to the following colors, which for our purposes was just fine. As you can see, our first step was to tear up little bits of red, orange, yellow, green, blue and violet paper.
Next, we drew some arches on a square piece of paper and made quick notes of which colors belong where.
Then, one by one, we filled in the arches – first with glue, then with paper. Until the picture was complete.
