Kindergarten Color

This is one of my favorite color lessons that I teach to the Kindergarten!  I demonstrate color mixing with food coloring in cups of water on the overhead projector.  The students fill out a color wheel of their own with markers.  The following topics are covered in 40 minutes:  a review of the elements of art, how to color neatly, primary colors, secondary colors, warm colors, cool colors, neutral colors, how to write the names of colors, Spanish word for each color, sign language for each color, value, what happens when you mix all the colors together, and what do the colors taste like.  My ending performance of drinking the last cup of water usually leaves the crowd stunned.
