The 4K students began this project listening to the story of Strega Nona by Tomie dePaola. Just like she has a magical pasta pot, the students got to mix pasta with the primary paint colors to “magically” make new colors. Armed with spoon wands, we discovered that red and yellow made orange, blue and yellow made green, and red and blue made purple. We also noticed that by adding more or less of one color, the final color would be slightly different. Once the pasta was coated, they dumped out the container and used the noodles to paint.
