Rainbow Glasses

In this activity, learners explore light, color and rainbows by making their own rainbow glasses. Learners glue "rainbow optics paper" onto the glasses cutout, add decorations and attach pipe cleaner earpieces. Learners name the different colors they observe and notice that the colors always appear in the same order. This activity guide includes open-ended questions to help learners explore these topics further.
