Have you ever made a rainbow with milk? It’s such a fun and simple experiment to do with kids. I created a free procedural text article with the materials and directions listed for students to follow themselves. Why not study procedural text in context by actually following a procedure?! Perfect rainbow themed activity for St. Patrick's Day.
When you say "fist to five check" students rate their understanding by holding up the appropriate number of fingers. The goal is for everyone to be in the green. Great way for students to self-assess their understanding and help you to gauge student understanding.
