make a colorwheel from a lazy-susan
Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Do You See?. We are a literature and play based school and so we do multiple readings of the book of the week and try to tie in our class exploration with all things lit-based. That meant we were up to our eyebrows in animals and colors and so I decided to make us a color wheel with a little help from the kiddos.
Cut a large-enough sheet of clear contact paper for your soon-to-be circle and peel backing paper off. Place contact paper sticky side up and place your red triangle on top. Continue connecting your triangles until you have a circle; make sure yo place your triangles in color-wheel order. Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Purple and back to Red. My circle was a little short so I cut some more red and layered it down.
Once your color-wheel is complete, add another sheet of clear contact paper over the top of your wheel and tape down onto the lazy-susan using loops of masking tape. Using a lazy-susan will turn your wheel into a game, you of course, do not need one.
