Rain, rain, go away. Come again another day. It seems like my kids have been singing this tune every day for months now! The rain started in our part of the world and it just hasn’t let up. Instead of dwelling on the dreary, we decided to look forward to the new growth & beautiful rainbows that will result from the weeks of downpour. In March, we will focus our homeschool to a rainbow unit study to help the kids understand rainbow color sequencing and how rainbows form!
Rainbow Unit Study Materials
Acrylic Prisms– You can use glass prisms as well, but I like to use acrylic to avoid the risk of shattering with toddlers & preschoolers.
Rainbow Stacking Boxes– The kids love stacking & nesting these rainbow colored boxes!
Rainbow Magnets– My kiddos will not put these down…as you can see, the red one is missing in this photo because my daughter wouldn’t give it back 🙂 I cut up some pipe cleaners and placed them in the jelly jar beside the magnets. The kids can use the magnets to move the pipe cleaners up and down the jar.
Big Book of Colors– This book is ah-ma-zing! It has a moveable color wheel in the front, primary and interesting color shades on each page, and a color mixing activity in the back.
Color Wheel Bingo– This is a simple and beautiful game that teaches children primary colors and common objects & animals.
Color Wheel Printable– I printed this one and placed it in a picture frame to hang above our rainbow shelf.
Somewhere Over the Rainbow Printable– This print is also hanging above our rainbow shelf.
Rainbow Color by Number– This sheet is kept in a tray with rainbow colored pencils.
English & Spanish Colors Printable– more colors are included in this printable, but I chose to only cut & laminate the colors of the rainbow. I punched holes in the top & bottom and ran twine through each one to create a hanging color card section beside our rainbow shelf.
