KET's Everyday Science is funded in part by Kentucky Power and the American Electric Power Foundation and PNC Bank.
What color do you get when you mix blue and yellow? Children learn about mixing two colors to create a new color in this original interactive from KET.
This resource is part of the KET Everyday Science collection.
Everyday Science: Mixing Colors (Video)
Mixing two separate colors to create a third new, or different color is a wonderful hands-on activity that can help young children learn about one of the most basic concepts, altering a physical property of a substance, such as its appearance.
The colors used for mixing in this resource are red, blue and yellow. They are known as the primary colors. By mixing them together, secondary colors are produced. Those colors are orange, purple and green.
The Teaching Tips will give you some ideas how to continue the conversation and expand on the content in the interactive.

Academic standards correlations on Teachers' Domain use the Achievement Standards Network (ASN) database of state and national standards, provided to NSDL projects courtesy of JES & Co.
We assign reference terms to each statement within a standards document and to each media resource, and correlations are based upon matches of these terms for a given grade band. If a particular standards document of interest to you is not displayed yet, it most likely has not yet been processed by ASN or by Teachers' Domain. We will be adding social studies and arts correlations over the coming year, and also will be increasing the specificity of alignment.
