Additional Details

The Subtractive Color Theory Demonstration allows students to manipulate transparent tiles on a back-lit board to see how color mixing with light produces different results than mixing pigments. The puzzle is a great way to introduce additive and subtractive color mixing of lights versus color combinations while sliding and stacking the tiles to produce different outcomes. 

  • Investigate and explain the effects of different colors on the output of different colors of light.
  • Differentiate results in pigment mixing versus light mixing.
  • Great for understanding reflection and absorption, and Understand additive and subtractive colors.
  • Model how light waves are reflected, refracted, or absorbed. 
  • Allow students to investigate the effects of different color combination and teach the optics and physics of coloring mixing.

  • Standards

     1-PS4-2.   Make observations to construct an evidence-based account that objects can be seen only when illuminated. 4-LS1-2.   Use a model to describe that animals receive different types of information through their senses, process the information in their brain, and respond to the information in different ways.
    1-PS4-3.   Plan and conduct an investigation to determine the effect of placing objects made with different materials in the path of a beam of light. MS-PS4-2.   Develop and use a model to describe that waves are reflected, absorbed, or transmitted through various materials. 
    4-PS3-2.   Make observations to provide evidence that energy can be transferred from place to place by sound, light, heat, and electric currents. MS-LS1-8.   Gather and synthesize information that sensory receptors respond to stimuli by sending messages to the brain for immediate behavior or storage as memories.
    4-PL4-2.   Develop a model to describe that light reflecting from objects and entering the eye allows objects to be seen.
