Shades and Tints

This week we reviewed primary colors and secondary colors.  Then we learned about shades and tints.  When you mix a color with black you get a shade and when you mix a color with white you get a tint.  We used that knowledge to paint pretty winter pictures.

Last JA Lesson :(

We had our last Junior Achievement lesson on Monday.  Thank you Mrs. DelCastillo for teaching us how we could be entrepreneurs and everything that goes into running a business.  We loved all the fun activities and thinking about the types of businesses we could start.

Northern Lights Art

We learned about the science behind the beautiful Northern Lights.  The colors that you see are actually tiny packets of light called photons.  They are created when electrons from the sun break through our magnetosphere, enter our atmosphere, and mix with oxygen and nitrogen.  Pretty cool huh?  Have you ever seen the Northern Lights?
