The Colors of the Rainbow helps children to embrace their differences and the differences of others - with emphasis on skin, hair, and eye color; clothing; language; food eaten; and religion - while helping them to realize the commonalities that exist as well. Rainbows are referenced throughout the book to help children realize that they and everyone else are unique like the individual colors of the rainbow and, when they come together with others, it creates something very special, like a rainbow.

Different aspects of diversity throughout
Activity 1 : PreKindergarten - Kindergarten
16.2.K.B: Identify similarities and differences between self and others.
An image of a rainbow will be cut into pieces and each student will get one piece. The students will be given an assortment of crayons and told to color each arc of the rainbow using the directions provided. When the students have finished coloring their pieces, they will share them with the class. Then, in small groups of 4, students will determine what makes them similar to and different from the peers they are working with. Finally, all of the pieces will be put together to form a unique rainbow, reminding the students of the importance of coming together and not letting their differences be a reason to keep them apart.

2. Color of your hair
