Color Wheel for Elementary Students     I’ve found that most color wheels are either too complicated (lots of sections and subsections) or too simple (three overlapping balloons) for your average elementary student.

LOVE THESE DECORATIVE WALL HANGINGS! create 3 symmetrical radial designs on 6x6" sketch paper, later transfer designs onto 36-gauge aluminum and use tools to emboss them. Black India ink was painted onto the surface of the embossed metal and later buffed away using steel wool. Use wire to hang the three pieces together and added small craft mirrors to each one to create the final decorative wall hanging (From The Calvert Canvas: School Art Camp)
