ROY G BIV


What a fun way to teach the color wheel! My son did a project something like this in his K class. I changed it a little and had the 2nd graders create rainbows. We also talked about how a rainbow is made an added painted paper rain clouds and suns. They were hit with the students.

  1. Just curious, do you teach the Roy G Biv names? I just use the R,O,Y,G,B,V because indigo is confusing. I also try to have the kids say violet, not just purple. What are your thoughts?

  2. Yep, I teach the names and explain that indigo is blue and violet mixed together. We just did not paint the indigo this time.

  4. I second They Might Be Giants. Love that. :)

    Just wondering...what is your process for creating painted paper. I've done it with a few grades and it always takes FOREVER...the kids paint one (fairly sized) piece in a class period.

    Just wondering how you make it work so efficiently!!
