Featured Activity Kit: Color Mixing Glasses

Looking for a creative way to increase a young student’s interest in Science? Introducing, Color Mixing Glasses. This activity kit will create excitement, interest and learning in your classroom!

Colour theory is taught through a variety of interactive colour glass lenses. The Color Mixing Glasses kit comes with 8 lenses: 2 blue, 2 red, 2 yellow and 2 colourless (clear). Students will intuitively learn how secondary colours are created when combining primary lenses in the same eye slot. The clear lenses allow students to see the world as insects see it. Included in the kit is a color mixing equations chart.  With this chart students can pick the colour combinations to see through the glass lenses.

This activity kit is recommended for students of the age of 3+ or students that are in Pre-Kindergarten +.

Want to try it out? Color Mixing Glasses activity kit is currently on display on the ground floor of the OISE Library, next to the Circulation Desk-OISE students. For more scientific experimental games similar to Color Mixing Glasses, please check out the OISE Library K-12 Manipulative Database or browse the 3rd floor of the Library.
