A4 worksheet for colour mixing with paints.
Children should put thumb prints of primary colours into the circles labelled, then mix them in the final circle.
Can be used as a reference when children are painting.
3 simple colour mixing sentences with circles to place the colours, then mix them together to make a new secondary colour at the end (Thumb print in one colour, index finger for second colour then rub finger and thumb together to make secondary colour)
This is a colour-mixing activity. It shows pupils what happens when they mix the primary colours red, yellow and blue. Pupils drag and drop colours into a colour-mixing machine that mixes the colours and makes the appropriate secondary colour. Pupils learn the basic colour theory and the terminology 'primary' and 'secondary' colours. They then apply their knowledge to a simple colouring-in exercise where they have a palette of primary colours that they use to make the secondary colours. Follow-up activities using paints have been suggested for pupils to explore colour mixing first hand.
A very simple poster that shows the 3 primary colours as paint brushes (2 above each pot) & the new colour each one makes. Also a couple of activity sheets to let the children record their findings if they wish.
