Colors lessons

the color wheel

Today we worked with Mr. G in the pediatric outpatient CDC room.  We played with a color mixing experiment in which we were able to experiment with the properties of watercolors.  By mixing colored tablets in vials of water, we held them up to the light and saw the many different colors we could make.  Red and blue made purple, red and yellow made orange, and we were able to make up to 7 different types of colors!  Next, we poured the colored water into different plates and we added some super-absorbant crystals!  The crystals soaked up the colored water and became very large shapes!  Let’s check up on these crystals next week!
