We draw the chameleon step-by-step together in pencil and then outline in sharpie marker.
After they have their chameleon drawn, they label each section of their chameleon with a letter - kind of like color by letter -
R=Red O=Orange Y=Yellow G=Green B=Blue P=Purple
This makes painting a lot easier and then they can begin by painting only the Primary Colors.
The next day we learn how to mix Secondary Colors.
Once students are finished painting their chameleon, they color in their branch and any leaves they have added with colored pencils.
4th Grade Color Wheels
We start by drawing out 12 circles, labeling all of the circles. We use little plastic cups as tracers to make nice circles.
After that, we paint with Primary Colors and then mix the Secondary colors.
It has 12 circles - 6 small & 6 big
All of the circles are labeled. It makes it easier when painting if you know where each color goes.
