Secondary Color Mice with Kindergarten

I found the book Mouse Paint by Ellen Stoll Walsh to be very helpful for teaching kindergarten about secondary colors. After we read the book, I let the students mix tempera paint to see if we got the same colors as the mice in the story.

The students at each table took turns stirring the different colors to make orange, green, and purple. It got a little messy, but I think that all the kindergartners know how to mix their secondary colors now!
