The Colour Green
This week whilst you are out on one of your daily walks to keep fit and mentally healthy, look out for things that are green.
We have looked for the primary colours already blue, red and yellow. they are primary colours because we can't mix them from other colours. This week we start our walk looking for secondary colours. If your mix blue and yellow together you get green.
I know there is a lot of green out there because we have had a fabulous April so far. the trick here is to find as many greens as possible. Here is what I have been able to find to start off our colour green collection. Please feel free to use our collection and add your own. Please send your photos in if you have something interesting we don't already have.
So, what are we going to do with our purple photographs. You can do just one or all of the following activities.
Remember to ask permission before you print off the photographs. If you can not print them off don't worry - use them as reference and write the name of the item in to your work.
Find as many examples of green as you can out side and inside and make a collage. You can do this either by printing off the photographs and cutting them up and sticking them down on paper. Using Word to place them in a nice arrangement. Use power point to rotate them or use them as your screen saver for this week.
2. History and Geography
Make a project about orange. Investigate where and how green was used in paintings and how different countries used green. Research where and when the deadliest green was invented
3. Design and Technology
Make a colour chart with your paints. Start with a green made with yellow and very little blue at the top and and a little bit more blue to it each time. Then make a swipe of paint at top of the paper, adding a little bit more red as you go down until the last swipe on the paper is almost red with a hint of yellow. Then make a picture only using the greens your can mix in this way.
Make a bar graph putting all the natural things found outside in the first point of data, all the manmade green things found in the second.
Make a number of Top Trump cards with the names of purple
Here is the start of our green collection.
