Mixing Colors with "Little Blue and Little Yellow"

Students mix colors to make new colors. In this color mixing lesson, students listen to Leo Lionni's Petit Bleu et Petit Jaune, before retelling the beginning, middle, and end of the story. They watch as the teacher mixes food coloring and make predictions about which colors will be made based on the color wheel. They use finger paint to practice mixing colors which they use to illustrate an original story they have written.
