Fabulous way to teach the color wheel! Ingenious! How can I get a PDF of your color wheel page? I am teaching this lesson to a class or Kindergartners this Friday....

This lesson was led by a parent volunteer, so I am not sure exactly where it came from, but you may have some luck looking here http://www.mrprintables.com/printable-color-wheel.html
