I teach first graders how to mix primary colors during an oil pastel project. I have always had the students practice mixing on a scrap paper as I demo in the front of the room. I suddenly realized that the class should be mixing on a color wheel! In Illinois, it's not technically an assessment till fourth grade, so I never even considered it! However; the flow of the wheel would definitely help some students understand it. Plus, it starts to make a basic foundation and connection to many projects in the future.
Of course, 30 minutes before my class I get this grand idea. I google "Color Wheel Coloring Page ."
I sift through a million results and cannot find a nice basic six color - color wheel with yellow on top. Every color wheel I have ever had hanging on my wall has yellow on top. The concept can be confusing enough to some kids, changing the order could really mess them up!
So, I made my own. The Color Wheel Coloring Page for primary and secondary colors only, with yellow on top, is now available for download. Enjoy!
