ACTIVITY QUESTIONS

Open-ended questions that can be asked during this activity:

  • White on White – Can you see where the paint is? How can you tell where your paint is and where there is no paint? What is the difference?
  • What do you notice about how the colours are working with each other?
  • Can you mix black and white together? What happens when we paint black on top of white? What happens when we paint white on top of black?
  • I wonder what would happen if we use a lot of black and only a little bit of white? What about if we do the opposite and use a lot of white and only a little bit of black?
  • I wonder if you can tell me the name of the new colour you have made? Can you think of something that we might see that is grey?
