They displayed these products under two different headings ‘Natural things’ and ‘Man made things’ . Based on students’ understanding, they displayed the items on the board.
How colours are made and can change
Learners did colour mixing activity. Two primary colours were put on their palm for example – red and yellow. Then we sprinkled some water on their palms. Learners rubbed their Palms and they saw how two primary colours can mix and form a new secondary colour. Learners also did squeeze and mix activity.They brought a white colour handkerchief. They dipped the handkerchief in the water and squeezed it. Then they folded the handkerchief four times and used fabric colours with the paint brush and learned how colours can be used in many ways .
