### Making a rainbow

1. 1. By Grace and Becca<br />Making a Rainbow<br />
2. 2. How can water break up light into separate colors and create a rainbow?<br />
3. 3. Materials<br />Hose<br />Spray bottle<br />The sun<br />Light prism<br />Adult <br />
4. 4. Steps of Investigation Part 1<br />First we got a hose and pointed it in the right weather conditions for a rainbow- the sun behind us and water in the air.<br />Next we sprayed it and we tried to see it. We did!<br />
5. 5. Steps of Investigation Part 2<br />Our second experiment was to show an example of a prism.<br />We got a light prism.<br />We shone a flashlight through the prism.<br />When we put it at a certain angle we saw a rainbow!<br />This picture shows how a light<br /> prism makes a rainbow <br />
6. 6. Results and Conclusions Part 1<br />When water droplets are in the air and the sun is on your back you will probably see a rainbow. That is because water bends white light into a rainbow.<br />When you point a prism in the right way you can see a rainbow.<br />The order of the rainbow is because of the wave lengths. Red is the least bent and Purple is the most bent .When you see a rainbow, what color is almost straight? The graph below explains the order<br /> of a rainbow. <br />
7. 7. Related Topics Part 1<br /> Sir Isaac Newton was a philosopher, astronomer, and a mathematician. He invented the reflecting telescope. His works were a scientific revolution. He was one of the first people to pass a beam of white light through a prism, making a rainbow.<br />
8. 8. Related Topics Part 2<br /> Why Is Red Called Red? We figured this out. The ancient Aztecs had a god called Red. They sacrificed animals to Red and of course their blood was red! So the Aztecs called the color red! <br />
9. 9. Interesting Details<br /> Why did Irish people think there was a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow? They didn’t. It was misunderstood. A rainbow is all the way round. The Irish understood this. So there was a saying that one was as likely to find a pot of gold as to find the end of a rainbow. These two were mixed up and tada! You have the myth!! <br />
10. 10. What we learned about God in our study<br />God can make beauty in a blink of an eye. <br />God made us a promise by making a rainbow.<br />God is very smart and knows everything about anything.<br />The study of rainbows has opened our eyes to the beauty that God can make.<br />
11. 11. The End!<br /> Remember to thank God for making rainbows so we can see them. Thank you, and remember that God made a promise with a rainbow.<br />
