How to Build a Better Rainbow Catcher
Testing Our Hypotheses
Once we established our hypotheses, proposed explanations based on our limited evidence as a starting point for further investigation, we experimented with materials to see what might work for our goals. Since it was a cloudy day, there were no rainbows circulating in the Tucker Room. We took some light sources and prisms to see if we could create rainbows.

Putting it all Together
Cate - This could be a cage but there's no top. (Encloses the cage) Now they'll never get out.
Adding the final touches to the Rainbow Catcher
Using the Rainbow's colors
Alongside our rainbow catcher research, we also worked with the colors to create new explorations. This week, we used colorful, rainbow like materials to collage and make works. We decided on two different strategies. Some friends had specific images in mind and then created them with materials. Other children let the materials inspire them and used what they thought was the strongest material to further their exploration.
