Painted Rainbow Skyline

2nd Graders have been learning all about the color wheel and color mixing. We reviewed the PRIMARY colors, red, yellow, and blue. They learned that the primary colors mix the SECONDARY colors, purple, green, and orange.

Students first completed a worksheet to figure out which colors make purple, green, and orange.

Blue and yellow make green.
Yellow and red make orange.
Red and blue make purple.

For their project students were only given the primary colors and used them to mix the secondary. They painted a yellow sun, and then created a rainbow pattern. Students then used cardboard to stamp winter trees in black paint. Lastly they used marker caps to create snowflakes.
