Blue Goose is a color mixing story about a red hen, blue goose, yellow chick, and white duck that all work together to paint their farm while the farmer is away.
After reading the story,
the girls drew pictures (I helped) with shapes large enough to paint in
then, I gave them blue, red, yellow, and white paint.
After the animals use primary colors around the farm,
they work together to mix their paint colors to paint things like
the grass and sky
Mixing up their paint is what the girls liked best!
They even mixed the mixed up paint
making purpley-pinks and brownish-greens
At the end of the story,
Blue Goose makes it night by painting everything blue.
It was really neat seeing how the colors changed just by painting blue over them.
The blue paint really made it seem like twilight, especially when the sun was painted white to look like the moon.
Save this idea for later!
