Rainbow Fish

I love this system for introducing the color wheel and color mixing to young students.  I think the idea came from Deep Space Sparkle and it works so well.  With a sharpie draw three circles on the plate.  This is where kids will mix the secondary colors.  In the in-between places drop a dab of red, yellow, and blue paint.  The circles give the kids a visual cue where to mix their paint so everything ends up neat and tidy.
We used our newly mixed colors to paint us some RAINBOW fish.
We added pattens and colors with oil pastels.
We cut them out.
Tomorrow we'll add a border and paste them here.
First and Second Grade.
