The Color Wheel

Students are given bags of skittles. They put the candy in rainbow order (ROYGBV). They then draw a circle using a compass and use a ruler to cut the circle into 12 pie pieces. Next, the students place the primary colors on the color wheel and mix the primary colors to make the secondary colors on the wheel.
