Mixing Colors

The children love the water table, but this time they were able to experiment with mixing colors. Today they had yellow water and red water in squirt bottles.  Teacher Elda asked the children to squirt the water into a measuring cup. Ingrid put the red in first.  Teacher Elda asked, "What color do you think it will make if we add yellow to the red?" Ryan guessed red, while Eliosa though maybe it would stay yellow.  Eloisa poured some yellow into the red. Teacher Elda asked, "What color is that?" Ingrid said, "Orange!" This allows children to experiment and make predictions as to what will happen through cause and effect.
