  6. 6. Activity, Step-by-Step <ul><li>After proper distribution of materials, students will begin by drawing and coloring a rainbow using crayons </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Remind students to press hard on the piece of paper </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Drawing should be in “proper rainbow order” </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Students can also draw other details, like the sun, raindrops, or clouds </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Familiarize students with the watercolor technique </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Wet the color first, brush gently, then rinse and wipe the brush between colors </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Students should brush quickly across the paper </li></ul><ul><ul><li>This will create a beaded effect </li></ul></ul>
