Second grade students used owls as subject matter when learning about the secondary colors. As I demonstrated on the board, students followed along and drew 3 owls on their panoramic paper. Next, they used crayons to assign each owl a secondary color. On each owl they used the primary color crayons for that owl to add lines and designs. (Ex, on the Orange owl they were allowed to use Orange, Red and Yellow.) This part really tested their prior knowledge of primary colors & mixing to make the secondary colors. After all the owls had designs they added white stars to the sky and painted with water color paints!
