1. Distribute all materials to each student.

4. Students will be asked to use their scissors to cut the squares into circles. They should do this for all 6 colors.

5. Students should arrange their cut construction paper circles into a color wheel. Younger students may opt to put them in rainbow order.

6. Teacher will walk around and mark which students have the colors in the correct order, which students have only 1-2 colors misplaced, which students have 3 or more colors misplaced, etc.

7. Teacher will have group discussion on the color wheel/rainbow order. Students should arrange their color wheels correctly to reflect they have fixed their mistakes.

8. Students will glue down their color wheel and turn it in to the teacher.

9. Teacher will mark students’ cutting ability and will use students’ ages to assist with grading.
