Monster Symmetry

My kinder and first graders have been working with color mixing - first with crayon, moving on to watercolor and now we're using tempera to mix primary colors to create our secondary group.

Students folded and labeled their 12 x 18 papers. I put red, yellow and blue tempera on one side.

Fold paper closed and rub, rub, rub those colors together!

I have a drying rack full of amazing work!

Next class we'll have a discussion of symmetry and turn our paintings into monster faces. I can already see the potential here...

Best part was since I did the work in small groups of 5 kids at a time, there was only 1 table to clean!
