October Issue Super Sleuth

The October Super Sleuths was about color. For a chance to win a $25 Amazon email gift card, kids were asked to find the famous scientist and his rainbow experiment hidden in the October issue. They were also asked to identify the scientist, name the scientific tool he used for the experiment, and say whether they have ever used the tool in science class. Lastly, they were asked to name seven colors of the visible spectrum in order.

The correct answers are:

  • Page 2
  • “The scientist’s name was Sir Isaac Newton. He used a prism. I have not used that tool.”
  • “Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet.”


Congratulations, Mercy!
