Colour Mixing

Last week we began our first class inquiry - all about colours and colour mixing. We learned about primary and secondary colours with Mme. Lepage.
We created a classroom colour wheel together.

We conducted a colour experiment using food colouring, water and paper towel. We made predictions and documented our observations.

We sorted and threaded different coloured beads to create a classroom hanging colour display.
We graphed our favourite colours and conducted classroom surveys.
We read the book Mix it Up.

We read The Black Book of Colours.
Ask your child:
  • What are some colour words in French?
  • What are primary colours?
  • When colours do you make when you mix: blue and red, yellow and blue, red and yellow?
