The 3rd graders have been learning about primary (red, yellow, blue) and secondary (orange, purple, green) colors.
Students start out by drawing a chameleon, pencil first then sharpie. They label the chameleon's body in color wheel order (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple)
3rd graders only use the primary color and mix to make secondary colors.
The students color the background with colored pencils or crayons.
I'm in my 6th year teaching art in Becker, MN. Time has really flown by! Wowza!
