Color Wheel : Lesson Plans & Ideas

The colors we see are the result of a white light; when the white light is broken by a prism we see the spectrum. A rainbow is a common example of a spectrum and is the result of a raindrop acting as the prism. An object seen as blue contains pigment which absorbs all of the colored rays of white light except the blue, which it reflects.

A white object absorbs none of the colors in white light, so all the light is reflected back, black absorbs all the colors in white light and no color in the spectrum is reflected back to us. Painting a color wheel gives practice in recognizing color relationships, use of brushes and paint. Teacher defines and gives examples of color terms (orally and written) using a large color wheel and the current environment (clothing, furnishings) to identify colors. Welcome to SFSKIDS.
