Sunlight is made up of a bunch of colors all mixed together, but when sunlight passes through water it separates and we can see all the colors of the rainbow! Lots of colors are made the same way, and you can discover what colors are used in your markers by doing an experiment with just water and a paper towel. Darker colors absorb light and lighter colors reflect light, so wearing a white t-shirt on a hot day can help keep you cool. Animals use color to stay safe with camouflage.
