1st grade students used cherry, lemonade, and blue raspberry Kool-Aid to perform mixing experiments to confirm that yellow and blue make green, red and yellow make orange, and blue and red create purple. Then students documented their experiments filling out color equations sheets.
2nd grade students review the primary and secondary colors and created a project based off the book Mouse Paint by Ellen Stoll Walsh. First students glued together a red, yellow and blue primary colored background. Then they cut out green, purple, and orange secondary mice. To complete their project they added brown ears and tails followed by drawing on eyes and whiskers.
3rd, 4th, and 5th graders are working on recreating a collaborative project for our school building. First students painted a cardboard paper towel tube white, next they drew out their designs for decorating their tube, and then using crayons students starting drawing directly on their tube. This project is still ongoing and once it’s complete for all 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade classrooms; I will install it and post additional pictures.
Kindergartens learned about the three primary colors: red, yellow and blue. They colored one crayon red, one crayon yellow, and one crayon blue. Then students cut each crayon out practicing scissor control and glued them onto black paper.
