Enjoying Life in Living Color

 Our understanding of light and color dates back to the 1600s, when an English physicist and mathematician began a series of experiments with sunlight and a special scientific tool. He demonstrated that pure white light was composed of seven different colors as seen in a rainbow. This scientific discovery laid the foundation for others to experiment with colors in a scientific manner and led to breakthroughs in optics, physics and the study of color in nature. 

 Help Hay Seed and City Slicker learn more about this experiment, and a chance to win a $25 Amazon email gift card, by doing the following:

August Issue Super Sleuth

 The August Super Sleuths was about finding summer’s happy ending by celebrating some special days in August. For a chance to win a $25 Amazon email gift card, kids were asked to find an image of an angel hidden in the issue. They were also asked to provide the page number and describe how they would celebrate Be An Angel Day, as well as give an example of someone who has been an angel to them. 

The correct answers are:

  •  Page 4

  • I could make meals for sick people. 

  • My dad, who works really hard to provide for me. 

 Our winner is Joel. 

Congratulations, Joel!
