In third grade we are making an artistic sampler of color mixes. Now that they are in the final stages, they have really developed individually. We all started the same way by making large closed shapes that were filled in with the primary color. We went on to paint the secondary shapes. After those 6 colors were designated, they were free to make any mixture they wanted and could make it into any shape they desired.
The fourth grade is making interactive color wheels. The top layer will be a triangle that moves to indicate a triad of color. It will be able to identify the primary colors as well as the secondary colors. The bottom layer will be just a bit larger and will have the full 12 steps of color, which will include the primary, secondary, as well as the 6 tertiary colors.
