When sun meets rain

As one of the Curious Kids projects this term, the children in Foundation are learning all about the weather.

To introduce the topic they looked at rainbows and discovered that when it is sunny and raining simultaneously, the rain droplets act like little prisms to create a rainbow.
They looked at rainbows and found they are made up of several colours.

They then decided to make their own rainbow display.  They cut out raindrops and painted a rain cloud, made a sun with a collage of tissue paper and then made a big rainbow using their handprints.
