Helping 'Early Years' understand the first principles of colour mixing
This unit is designed for early years children to help them understand the first principles of colour mixing. By making hand prints with a different primary colour on each hand, they can then rub their hands together to form a secondary colour and hand print again. By this means an understanding of colour mixing is achieved.
This simple unit is a very direct way to help children learn that colours mix.
