Many rainbows children find on the Internet are incorrect - they are portrayed in the wrong order, backwards, or with non-rainbow colors like pink. The Rainbow Ranger in this PowerPoint WebQuest will teach very young learners the correct order of rainbow colors as they learn to use the computer to access information and solve puzzles. Additionally, your students will learn how to spell the colors of the rainbow and they will learn a song that will help them remember the order of colors.
This activity is perfect for a March theme on rainbows. Add it to a literacy unit that uses Rainbow Fish or Where's Green? to add character education to your science unit.
Note: Make sure you play the PowerPoint, rather than simply look at the single slides. You'll see that some pictures and paragraphs disappear on a single slide before the next picture or paragraph appear on the same slide. I did this to create interest!
