Leo Leonni's book, Little Blue and Little Yellow, is one of my favorite books to read this time of year. While fitting in perfectly with all things green in the classroom this month, it provides a meaningful extension for numerous color mixing and art lessons. Last year, I used this book as inspiration as we explored collage techniques as seen in the post HERE. This year, I have put together a color-mixing activity utilizing a different gluing technique which is new for my students.
