Second Grade Color Wheels

This is one of those projects that didn't exactly turn out as planned. But I think I like the end result here even better. Second graders, at Emerson looked at the color wheel and talked about various color families on the wheel. (Primary, Secondary, Intermediate etc.) Then they used scrap construction paper to create their own color wheels from torn paper. Many of the kids were having trouble with the concept of spacing their paper scraps evenly (mosaic style) and building a thick layer of color for each color on the wheel. As a result some color wheels were smaller than others. So I assembled them all together on our hall bulletin board and tah-dah, a beautiful group composition.
