Time Main Content: Teaching Approaches


Advise students we will be discussing 3 new
colours- purple; green; orange.

Whole class thinking/discussion to share what
colours they think make up the 3 new colours.

Ask students how they might be able to find out
what colours mixed together, make purple,
green and orange.

Students must wait for teacher instruction
before touching/mixing paints
Students who dont follow instructions may need to sit and
watch instead of participating.
Inform students they will be mixing only 2
colours of paint together to see how they can
create purple, green and orange
Show each colour through the
IWB/PowerPoint presentation
(Teaching Ideas, 2014).
(Use printed copies of these 3
colours, to refer to throughout
as well)
Record answers on whiteboard
to reflect on guesses at the
conclusion of the lesson

Key Learning Area: The Arts Year Level: Foundation


Students receive:
-a painting worksheet
-3 small containers with red; yellow and blue paint
-3 plastic spoons
-1 paintbrush
-Blotting paper
-small container of water
-small paper plate for mixing paints

Students begin by writing their name on
When directed to do so, students place a small
amount of the two colours according to number
1 on their worksheets, onto an area of a paper
plate. Using their paintbrush, students mix the
two colours, and paint the shape in number 1,
the colour they have made.

Repeat with number 2 & 3 on worksheets

Students proceed to clean-up paint and desks, then
colour in the remainder of their colour wheel using
crayons or pencils following the guide:

- Number 2 = orange
- Number 4 = purple
- Number 6 = green

Using coloured dots that are the same as the two paint
colours students used, students stick them on the colour
they made e.g. show example to students
Stick a red and yellow dot, on the orange triangle.
Stick a yellow and blue dot, on the green triangle
Stick a blue and red dot, on the purple triangle
EXTENSION ACTIVITY students can stick the
remaining colour names on the correct colours
putting small amounts
of paint onto paper
plates-do not mix
Only use paintbrush to
mix the two colours on
the plate
Clean and blot
paintbrush before
mixing new colours on
the paper plate
Demonstrate the
process of cleaning
paintbrushes using
blotting paper
*Discuss each colour
discovered with students

Students put worksheets on
benches to dry
Use IWB to show a completed
colour wheel, and the colour

Time Conclusion: Teaching Approaches
Discuss with students, the new colours made, and how
many colours it took to make each one.
Students learn that mixing two colours to make orange;
green; purple is called secondary (break down the
word with second to assist with understanding) a color
created by mixing two primary colors together
(Trowbridge, 2013).
