Continuing our color unit students got to see a bit of magic in the book Mix It Up by Herve Tullet. The book showed paint being mixed from Primaries into Secondaries and what white and black paint can do to other colors when added, students watched in amazement at the lifelike images. Students then learned a little about patterns and how shapes and colors must be repeated in order to be one. The objectives were; create a flower using crayons to color it in as a pattern (students learned that wax resists water), next step use primary and secondary colored markers on coffee filters to create patterns, next students sprayed water onto the filters over their flowers and Voila!
