Description:

On watercolor paper, student will draw a cloud shape, cut it out, trace it, and cut out a second cloud shape. Tape to a base paper with opposite sides up. Paint clouds with watercolor.

Using protractor trace two rainbow arches onto watercolor paper. Paint rainbows using watercolors. When dry cut them out.
