Primary Colors by OK Go

I also love giving my kinders hands on experience with color mixing and

I also added a Jr. Scientist page for each one.  Students can record what the initial experiment looks like.  Following the steps of the scientific method, they make a hypothesis about what they think is going to happen.  Last, there is space for them to record what really happened.

  1. Thanks for sharing about the youtube videos! Those will be fun to show! We just did the milk experiment! My kiddos loved it! We did it 8 times!

  3. Looks like fun! At my old school we used to have "mini courses" that kids signed up for and went to every Friday afternoon for a month. One year I did "Rainbow Magic" and did things like this. Of course I had all the kinders sign up!
