Could you GET any more colour?

Sometimes colour theory can be such a task.   And Class teachers are soon expecting Christmasy or wintery stuff for the walls - too early!  So I devised a colour wheel with a snow flake design.

The class were given a  folded 1/6 of a circle (yes more maths), and cut a simple snowflake segment.  this was used  as a template to draw a complete snowflake.  (The children thought that they could reuse the template to make reindeer antlers.)

Primary colours are added then a secondary colour placed correctly, finally further variations of those colours, added in the negative spaces.  i.e. yellow/green and blue/green.

A little bit of cutting round the edge emphasises the pattern.

Even the messy ones look great!
