Little ones will learn about primary colors and color mixing.
Primary colors are the colors from which all other colors are mixed. They are red, blue and yellow.
What You Need:
- white paper
- paint (primary colors)
- paint brushes
- example of a color wheel (optional)
What You Do:
- Talk about primary colors.
- Give each child a piece of paper.
- Ask them to trace 3 concentric circles using blue, red and yellow (explain them they should use pure colors and try not to mix them at this point). This is the snail's shell.
- Then, let the children draw the snail's head and eyes. These can be painted also using primary colors or secondary colors that have been mixed by the children.

Are You a Snail?

This book is an excellent read-aloud and with the help of an adult, a nice early reader for K-1 students. It would be a wonderful addition to an invertebrate, backyard animals or other animal science curriculum.
