We had a lot of fun with paint for this project! The students learned about the three primary colors - red, blue, yellow - and how you can mix any color you can think of using primary colors. Before we started painting, we drew a pumpkin with oil pastel using curved lines to make it look round. We painted the pumpkin yellow. Then, we painted red right over the wet yellow paint and it made orange! We then painted our leaves - first with yellow and then with blue to make green. The next class, we cut the pumpkins and leaves out and glued them onto a black background. We used crayons to make the pumpkin look like it was in a field or any other place we wanted it to be. This lesson was inspired by a lesson found on Deep Space Sparkle.
