More on Color

I finally snapped a picture of the color mixing work I currently have out, completed.

Here you can see it a bit more closely. I used colored Sharpies to add the control.

And, a shot of of the color wheel, built as part of a terminology lesson on primary, secondary, and tertiary colors. The triangle of primary colors (color box 1) is in the center. Around the outside of that is the wheel of primary and secondary colors (box 2), and the outermost ring includes the tertiary colors. Just to the right of that, you can see the bottles of color that the child who did this work used to make the tertiary colors, which she first mixed, and then selected a tablet from Color Box 3 to match.

Here are the tertiary colors after she mixed them all. After she finished, she used a paintbrush and applied these colors to a piece of easel paper, where she had drawn her own color wheel.

Lovely stuff! We have some newly given colour paddles that have ignited an explosion of interest in colour and mixing in our classroom.

I love you blog and I will be keeping a close eye for more good ideas!
