Painting Shirts Worksheet

Worksheet Description

This worksheet is a visual activity on color mixing, using T-shirts as a medium for teaching. It displays rows of colored T-shirts, each row with two shirts side by side, followed by a plus sign and then an empty outline of a shirt, suggesting a result of the color mix. The colored shirts represent primary colors, and the task is for students to color the blank T-shirt with the secondary color that results from mixing the colors of the two shirts shown. This interactive method allows students to apply their understanding of color theory in a practical exercise.

The purpose of this worksheet is to teach students about the outcomes of mixing different primary colors. It illustrates the basic principles of color theory in a relatable context, using an everyday object like a T-shirt. Students learn that red and yellow make orange, yellow and blue make green, and blue and red make purple. Through this coloring task, students enhance their understanding of color combinations and develop their ability to predict and create secondary colors.
