Tint and Shade with a Cherry on Top!

This is my second year doing this lesson. It is so great for teaching tint and shade, which I do in First Grade. It was tough to do in two class times. So maybe three, and add a little Wayne Thiebaud? First day students mixed their values. Two tints and two shades, and also the original color. The next week we did a review, and introduction to a value scale on smart board. They cut and glued their scoops on top of a cone to create a value scale. Last were the toppings. Sprinkles, whipped cream, chocolate sauce, and fruit on top!

I did this lesson last year too! Better bulletin board then :)
