Fun with Colors

It is always an utmost fun for a kid to play with colors. Students of PP 2 had a wonderful experience with colors, which was conceptualized on fruits and vegetables. Children were divided into groups named as Apple group, Mango group, etc. Cut-outs of fruits like Apples, Strawberries, Mangoes, Bananas were given to them to color with water colors and paint brushes. They could learn about primary colors, without mixing of other colors.

Next day, Students were amazed when they were asked to mix two colors to produce a secondary color. They were excited to see Red and White turned into Pink, Yellow and Red into Orange, Yellow and Blue becoming Green, Blue and Red combining to Purple. They were emphatic and yelled “it is magic!!”. With pink they colored Onion, with Orange color they colored an Orange. Students learnt that the Primary Colors can be mixed together to produce SECONDARY COLORS.
