This week we have started talking about the colour wheel and exploring what happens when you mix primary colours. I set out this invitation to explore during play. The kids love squishing the paint around the bags and watching what happens as the colours blend. M & R then asked, “What would happen if we mixed red, yellow AND blue?” So we did!
We also did our first painting project to explore the colour wheel. As the students painted, I demonstrate on a large wheel at the board. They were so excited to see the complimentary colours forming. I was thrilled to see some of the Kinders walking up and comparing their wheels with mine, then hearing “Yay! I did it!”
