When a Bad Lesson Turns Good!
Last week I was trying to get my 3rd graders to make really complex color wheels. It was not going very well! I decided to abandon the wheels. But I still wanted them to play around with mixing colors and with Thanksgiving right around the corner. I decided to have them draw cartoon turkeys and make 6 feathers I only gave them yellow, red, blue black and white and asked them to make these rainbow turkeys. They had a blast and the turkeys turned out much better then the wheels. They mixed each color to create tints and shade then mixed all the colors to create the body.
