Two templates for this printable color wheel project that will help children learn about primary and secondary colors. The suggested classroom project is to print out six pages of the unlabeled color wheel template on secondary and primary color printer paper. Each of six children can cut apart the triangles. Using the labeled color wheel template, each child can match one of the primary or secondary colors that were cut apart and glue them to the labeled template.
