Hue is pretty much synonymous to what we actually mean when we said the word "color." All of the primary and secondary colors, for instance, are "hues." Hues are important to remember when combining two primary colors to create a secondary color. If you don't use the hues of the two primary colors you're mixing together, you won't generate the hue of the secondary color. This is because a hue has the fewest other colors inside it. By mixing two primary colors that carry other tints, tones, and shades inside them, you're technically adding more than two colors to the mixture ‐‐ making your final color dependent on the compatibility of more than two colors.
Color mixing is always one of my favorite units! Learning colors is a huge aspect of preschool curriculum, and there are so many great books and resources on them. You can talk about colors just about anywhere you are! The idea of mixing two colors to form a new color is somewhat of a complex concept for preschoolers. While it may be easier to understand that red and white make pink, it′s just not as easy to remember that blue and red make purple. Whenever I do color mixing with young children, I try to make the process of learning one that is memorable. If we engage their senses in the process, then it becomes an even greater tool.
According to color theorists, pictures help to stimulate memory and boost information recall. But this doesn′t mean printing and sticking‐up random pictures around the room; it′s the colors used within the images that help with the revision process. For example, an image of a sky will inevitably incorporate lots of blue, and the color blue is known to be calming and to boost creativity – both of which are important during revision. Or red, which is associated with adrenaline and correction, encourages both awareness and vigilance, in turn boosting memory and recall. Different pictures may be relevant at different stages of revision. Red may be more appropriate in the thick of revision, whilst your child is trying to absorb as much information as possible, whereas blue may be more beneficial in the days leading up to exams to keep stress levels low.
