Color Wheel Introduction

As one of our introduction lesson to the color wheel, I gave each table a bowl of miscellaneous items to plot (using teamwork) on their wheel.  They had a variety of colors, including ones that did not quite "fit" on purpose!  I watched to see how kids would respond, how it would spark conversation and finally, how they might socially come to an agreement on its placement.  This was a great way to start discussing intermediate colors (between one primary and secondary neighbor.) They     really enjoyed this.                               Thanks for all of the bloggers who inspired this idea!
