If you are an art teacher you have no doubt taught a color wheel lesson or two (or two hundred!) I'm always on the lookout to shake things up away from the boring fill-in the blank color wheel lessons. I do think it is a very important lesson to teach, but we need to change it up some. I continue to refer to a color wheel with my adult students.
So...take the students outside and gather up some leaves and start printing!
Make sure that the leaves still contain moisture. The dry leaves will just crumble.
