Investigating Color

Students spent some time exploring the Colored Shadows station I had set up, which affords them an authentic experience regarding the additive properties of color.  Next, we talked about sources of light and about how all the colors in white light are there all the time, but some of the colors are absorbed while others are reflected. Finally, each pair of students got a palette with only red, yellow and blue paint, and they tried a little color mixing of their own!
