Junior Editors Quiz on. RAINBOWS QUESTION: Whera does the rainbow aet lt< color? ANSWER: From sunlight «s it passes through drops of rain. The drops act like tiny prisms, and as the sun rays pass through they are separated into different colors. There are seven colors in a rainbow. These are violet, indigo, blue, green, yellow, orange and red. These colors blend into each other so you seldom see more than four or five clearly. Occasionally, a rainbow is formed by the moonlight but It is very faint — since moonlight is far feebler than sunlight. You can also often see rainbows in spray that flies from a waterfall. The rainbow has colorful names in many languages. The French call it the "arch in the sky." To Italians, it is "the flashing arch," and the people of Annam refer to it as "little window in the sky." There is a legend that a pot of gold can be found at the foot of a rainbow. FOR YOU TO DO: Color this picture including the rainbow, using the colors mentioned above. Cut heavy lines in bottom panel and fold center panel forward, end panels back. Save it to compare with a real rainbow in the sky.
