Kindergarten experimented with color mixing with shaving cream and food coloring. We added fall colored food coloring to shaving cream and stirred it in a swirling pattern. The students took turns adding their white construction paper on top of the shaving cream, transferring the color to paper, and then wiped away the shaving cream with paper towel. This left a marbling effect on the paper. The students then practiced tracing and cutting skills by tracing leaves on the paper and cutting them out. In another lesson, they practiced using watercolors and paintbrushes appropriately by painting apples. Their leaves and apples were added to the Kinder bulletin board in a fall display.

To access prior knowledge, Ms. Willemin asked the students to share what they knew about plants. The information was put on a class Circle Map using the Promethean Board. The students then went on a nature walk around the school to examine various plants. Each student collected at least one leaf. In class the students created a leaf rubbing to show the different features of their leaves.
