Creative Color Wheel

- tempera paint (red, yellow, blue)
- paintbrushes
- white drawing paper
- pencils
- scissors
- glue or glue sticks
- black mounting paper

I like to do a color theory lesson at least once a year with each grade. I think these just turned out absolutely beautiful!

The diameter of these circles were about 16". I drew a circle on a piece of tagboard prior to the lesson, and divided it into 12 sections evenly. I ended up with 12 pie slices that were used as tracers for my students.

For their preliminary draft, I asked the students to trace a pie slice three separate times on a piece of paper. They were then asked to change the shape, using the slice as a guide on how large to make their design. Each pie slice had to have a design that would allow them to incorporate two colors (one for the color wheel color, and one for the complementary color). Together we chose the best design of their three.

With the chosen design, they now had to trace their own slice 12 times, so that they had enough to complete a color wheel.

To begin painting, I found it easier to ask the students to pick one set of complementary colors at a time. For example, blue and orange. In one pie slice, they paint the blue as the main color and orange as the accent. They then paint the orange in another pie slice as the main color and blue as an accent. After, they just worked their way around the color wheel. This helped keep them in order and not jump around.

I have individual color wheels that the each student was able to use as a reference also- this helped them keep at their own pace and remember which color to do next. 

The students were only allowed to use red, yellow and blue paint also, being in charge of their own color mixing.

When all their pie slices were painted and dry, the students cut out their individual slices. I helped them arrange the pieces on a piece of 18" x 18" black construction paper so that they made a complete and evenly spaced circle. The last step was for them to glue down their pieces!

  11. Hi,
    I wanted to ask if anyone knew how the students traced their designs 12 times? Do they use carbon paper to transfer it?

    1. Hi, Lyndsay! I had the students make one "master tracer" on cardstock and they used that to trace 12 designs... they just had to fill in the inside details to match the best they could.

  12. I'm usually very serious as this concerns Crazy Bulk. That is a systematic observation. What do we do with Fitness that has Fitness, because of the Fitness?

I believe that there is a trial period.

  15. That is regardless of being completely confused pertaining to Beauty Secret Answers. Presumably, I did feel like I might find Beauty Secret Answers. The only bad part was Beauty Secret Answers. You ought to have your Beauty Secret Answers performance tested. The concept of becoming a big chain store cashier because of Beauty Secret Answers does not appeal to that many learners. That's where this article comes in. I can't deal with that. This is the time for them to take control of this.

    Sudah empat tahun sekarang saya telah memberikan kesaksian tentang bagaimana saya meminjam Rp1,2 miliar dari ibu Helen dan beberapa orang meragukan saya karena tingkat penipuan online. Ibu Helen Wilson telah memberi saya satu hal lagi untuk tersenyum karena setelah menyelesaikan angsuran pinjaman bulanan yang saya pinjam sebelumnya, saya memohon kepada Ibu Helen bahwa saya ingin pergi untuk ekspansi bisnis lebih lanjut sehingga saya meminta tambahan Rp3,7 miliar setelah melalui saya proses hukum. pinjaman itu disetujui oleh manajemen mereka dan saya menerima pinjaman saya dalam waktu kurang dari 48 jam di rekening bank BRI saya. Saya tidak memiliki tantangan dengan bank karena Mrs. Helen Wilson dan tim manajemen pinjaman WEMA Finance telah dianggap sebagai pemberi pinjaman yang sah baik di Amerika Serikat, MALAYSIA, INDONESIA dan Rumania, sehingga tidak ada masalah sama sekali.
    Untuk pinjaman apa pun, saya sangat merekomendasikan Ibu Helen Wilson hari ini dan selalu
