Light Diffraction Poster

Upgrade to Access | 1 page (PDF)|Grades: 3 - 7

A poster explaining the sunlight and its colors.

Sunlight is a mixture of all colors.

When all the colors of white light are separated, they make a spectrum. The spectrum is made up of six bands, with a band of red on one edge and a band of violet on the other.

The bands travel side by side, but it’s impossible to see them individually, unless you view them through a prism.

When light shines on an object, some of the colors are absorbed and others are reflected.
