Materials Needed:Activity 1 Paper PlatesScissorsCrayonsPegs or PencilsRulers or ProtractorsTapeActivity 2Red, blue, and green filters  Overhead ProjectorThree MirrorsActivity 3Bubble SolutionBubble Wands or drinking straws for each studentActivity 4A Flag that has green and black strips, black stars, and a yellow background where the white is suppose to be.Strategies:Activity 1 (Circle Wheel)With the scissors, cut the outer circle off of paper plate, divide the plate into eight equal sessions and color it red, blue, yellow, purple, white, green, indigo, and orange.  Put a hole in the center of the circle, push the pencil or peg through the hole and attach the tape to back of plate.  The purpose of the peg or pencil is to spin the plate.    Activity 2 (Color Demonstration)The object to this activity is to show how the primary colors (red, blue, and green) are separate colors but if you mix these colors you make secondary colors.  Then if you mix secondary colors you make white.Activity 3 (Bubbles) The students use the bubble to first blow and observe.  The students are then asked to make a list of all colors that they observe in the bubbles.  The students are then asked what kind of light they see hitting the bubbles.  Theyshould say they see white light passing through the bubbles causing the bubbles to appear different colors.  Activity 4 (Is Seeing Believing)The students are given a flag that is black, green, and yellow.  The students are then asked to stare at the star in the bottom right hand corner for 30 seconds and then turn the card over to the white side and observe what happens. The students should see the pinkish-red, white, and blue american flag.  The colors appear because the eye cones get tied and see complementary colors of the original colors.  Example:  White light minus green gives pinkish-red, and White light minus yellow gives blue.  Performance Assessment:The students are then asked to answer in written form "What happens when you add blue, yellow, green, and pink together?"  They should answer White. `
