The children were involved in a number colour blending experiences. It's one thing for us to read about making secondary colours from primary colours, but it's better for us to do it and see it for ourselves. So the children made rainbows using the three primary colours. How did we get six colours from three? By leaving spaces between each colour and then carefully blending them together.
They also spent a lot of time with eyedroppers and coloured water creating many new colours.
Rainbows are popping up everywhere:
We've enjoyed building with the Rainbow Blocks. It's been fun using the flashlight and seeing how by putting blocks close together the colours change!
We even got to EAT rainbows.
Fruit kebab rainbows on a stick!
As a part of math we did some graphing using Smarties. The children each got their own little box of Smarties and then had to create a graph with the colours of the Smarties in their box. Interesting how different each graph was. We then asked these questions: Which colour was the most? Which colour was the least? and Are there any colours that are the same? All of these are math concepts that we are working on.
The best part was when we got to eat them! Mmmm!
We shared our results with a partner:
I'm Mrs. MacDonald. Welcome to a window into our kindergarten classroom. My goal of this blog is to give you an opportunity to see some of the things that we are doing at school. Enjoy!
