This project was done with my third grade students. I had already talked to my students about different kinds of lines and after studying organic and geometric shapes, I decided to do a color wheel project in wax resist so that the students could apply what they know about lines and shapes while learning color theory. I showed the students how to split their 9x12 inch paper into six sections and said that the division could either be random or more symmetrical.
Of course I prefer the more random one. :) I wish I would have remembered to teach the students "asymmetrical". Don't know what I was thinking! I'll have to point that out.
