Peace Symbol with Primary Colors (Kindergarten)

Students used primary colors to cover a paper plate after adding one vertical line and two diagonal lines with masking tape.  The students were amazed when they discovered the secondary colors.

Peace Symbol with Primary Colors (Kindergarten)

The kindergarteners Learned about Peace and different Peace symbols after reading a book about Peace.  They created one of the peace symbol using oil clay.

Then, they learned about the primary colors. They used paper plate and pieces of masking tape to add a vertical line and two diagonal lines before painting.

Students used a sponge and yellow paint to  cover the plate.

After that, they added blue on top of the yellow. They discover that a new color was made when yellow and blue were mixed. They made the discovery of the new color on their own.  Great surprise!

The next time, students added the last primary color on top. Their reaction to this experiment was amazing.
