Kindergarten students are learning about Primary Colors. Primary Colors are red, yellow, and blue. They are very special colors because they can mix to make new colors but - you can't make a Primary color.
We are using our Primary colors in a few different projects but we really got our hands messy with this one! Handshake Color Mixing.
We talked about why you would shake hands with someone and we practiced that. "Hello. Nice to meet you!" "Hi! My name is....." Then each pair of students selected a primary color and I painted it on their hands. They then shook hands again. This time the paint mixed together on their hands and created a Secondary color! We printed our hands onto a white paper before cleaning up our creatively, messy hands!
Washington has been my "Home" school for many years now. I enjoy teaching all the different students who make up this diverse school. I have taught a multitude of lessons in this building and have learned just as much from all of the students.
