Colour Dropping on the Light Table

We decided to put one of the children's favourite activities on the light table in order to add a new dimension to the experience. After covering the table with a plastic cover, we placed clear trays filled with water and the primary colours on top.

We invited the children to transfer the water in the trays using clear pipettes.

The light from the table illuminated the colours on the trays and helped children to distinguish between very light and dark shades. It was scientific art making!

The children were so engaged with the experience! Their conversations were rich with language describing the process and product of their work together.

They also shared colours from one tray to the other, working together to create new colours.

Beautiful! That smile says it all!
