Part of Weather Week
Rainbows are formed when sunlight passes through rain or water drops.
A rainbow is created when white light is bent while entering a droplet of water, split into separate colours and reflected back. A rainbow is actually round.
Why not make a sun catcher using the activity sheet and hang it in the window and you will see all the colours of the rainbow when the sun catches it.
See what colours you can see if you watch closely.
Now watch this video to learn more about how rainbows are formed and how to remember the colours.
