Find out how rainbows are formed

Find out all about the Science of how real rainbows are made by watching this video together:


You can make your own rainbow by propping up a mirror in a glass of water and shining at a torch at the mirror. If you do this in a dark place and hold white paper above the bowl of water, you can create a rainbow on the paper. You do sometimes need to experiment with angling the mirror and the torch a few times before you get it right!
