Color Theory Popsicles

Kindergarten students are moving on from lines and talking about colors.  We talked about the three primary colors – red, yellow, and blue.  With the addition of black and white, any color imaginable can be created using just those three primary colors.  When primary colors mix, it creates secondary colors.  Students got to see the magic (as some called it) in action through watercolors.  By painting the top of their popsicles one primary color and the bottom a different primary color, they created a secondary color in the center where the watercolors mixed.  The next week, students cut out their popsicles, added real sticks and glued them to colorful construction paper.
