Colour mixing
This is a colour-mixing activity. It shows pupils what happens when they mix the primary colours red, yellow and blue. Pupils drag and drop colours into a colour-mixing machine that mixes the colours and makes the appropriate secondary colour. Pupils learn the basic colour theory and the terminology "primary" and "secondary" colours. They then apply their knowledge to a simple colouring-in exercise where they have a palette of primary colours that they use to make the secondary colours. Follow-up activities using paints have been suggested for pupils to explore colour mixing first hand.
