Watercolor Weavings

Color wheels, Paint strips and Color Matching

Third and fourth graders learned all about the Color Wheel, color mixing and color matching.  They had three challenges to complete as part of this unit:

1. Paint all 12 colors of the color wheel and create your own color wheel

2. Find a photo in a magazine and match several of the colors in the image (inspired by this very cool website, Design Seeds)

3. Create a paint strip with different tints or shades of the same color and name each of the hues
