12 Hue Color Wheel
1 Phase 1: Introduction: Clarify aims and establish set.
Last week we learned about the primary colors. Today we are taking it to the next level by learning about secondary colors, to include the next level of colors called, “intermediate”.
2 Phase 2: Present the advance organizer (include and describe):
3 Phase 3: Present learning materials (outline of content):
Step 1: Trace and Lines
Trace a 6x6 template in all 4 corners of your 12x12 white paper. This will provide you with a central point. Divide each quadrant using a ruler with 2 more lines. This will give you 12 total spaces in a radial design.
Step 2: Labeling
Label your Color Wheel with Primary, Secondary and Intermediate colors around the outside edges, using my example color wheel to guide you.
Step 3: Paint and Cut
Using a mixing tray, mix 2 primaries to create a secondary. Paint in the primaries and secondary.
Next, use that secondary you mixed to create an intermediate. Repeat process until you have proceeded around the entire wheel. You may refer to my color wheel while you mix. Learn to use the wheel as a tool to help you!
Next class session, once the wheel is dry, fold into fourths. Cut around the edge in a design like a paper snowflake. Unfold and glue to the black paper.
Students watch and listen to actions of instructor. Next they begin to prepare to work by obtaining all necessary materials.
4 Phase 4: Application: (check for understanding and strengthen student thinking)
Instructor moves about the room and engages students in conversation about the variety of colors that are created with only three colors. RYB. Discuss which colors are considered the “complimentary” colors, and why?
Summarizing occurs through discussion for students to list random colors for example, name a primary color. Name a secondary color, name a intermediate color and complimentary color.
Students continue to work and answer the summary questions.
