“Mouse Paint” is a great book about color mixing for kids. Kindergarteners read this book and then mixed their own secondary colors using the primary colors. We used these secondary paintings the next time to create secondary colored mice. As a final touch we added primary colors in the background.
Here are a few rhymes we use to help us remember the primary and secondary colors.
“The primary colors are red, yellow, blue.” (with a fast clap for each color)
“The secondary colors just take longer to do. They are orange, green and purple... the secondary crew.”
Learning goals: I can...
- Mix primary colors to make secondary colors
- Cut shapes to create a collage
