Printables: Color Wheel
It is always best for the student to draw the assorted boxes and color wheels, however, if class time is short, you may print the handouts for your students and children. You may link to this web page: http://donnayoung.org/art/color-wheel.htm.
To Draw a Color Wheel:
Draw a large circle, a plate could be used as a template. Find the center of the circle and draw a line across the center. Lay a protractor on the line and mark at 30 degree increments. Draw lines on the 30 degree marks through the center to the other side of the circle to make the wedges of the color wheel.
The child should use the 3 primary colors: red, yellow, and blue to paint the color wheel. The child should learn to mix the colors to get the other needed colors.
red and yellow=orange, blue and yellow=green, blue and red=purple
Simplistic color wheel, it's not even called a color wheel. The terms used are primary colors, secondary colors, cool and warm colors.
Student colors the circles as implied on the worksheet. Three files below.
