The first grade will learn the order of the colors of the rainbow: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet. We will learn that indigo is a blue-violet hue. An easy way to remember the order of the rainbow is Roy G. Biv.
We will look at Peter Paul Rubens’s painting The Rainbow Landscape (painted in 1636) . What do you see in this artwork?
We will create our own rainbow landscape paintings and even learn to mix orange and indigo!
