One suggestion with the LED's would be to try to put two different ones close together so that one is focused on the upper part of the slit and the other on the lower part and see where they show up after going through the prism. Alternatively, you can focus a light bulb filament on the lower part of the slit while an LED illuminates the upper part so you can see the rainbow of colors below the LED line to see where it fits into the rest of the spectrum.

Promising ideas! I will try.
