This lesson will help students learn the primary, secondary, and tertiary colors. Students will also be expected to put the colors in the correct order and create a color wheel using some creativity.
You will need the following materials to complete this lesson:
Be familiar with all the information included on the Color Note outline. It may also be helpful if you create an example color wheel for the students to see.
Students should have a brief understanding of the primary and secondary colors.
Once this lesson is complete, students should be able to identify the primary, secondary and tertiary colors. Students should also know the order in which these three categories of colors fit on the color wheel.
All students need to complete this color wheel with all three categories of colors represented correctly. If struggling students need assistance, scale the assignment down a bit by asking them only to color a color wheel outline with their colored pencils, following the labeled sections.
Once you have corrected and returned the completed color wheels, discuss the fact that the warm colors are on one side of the color wheel and the cool colors are on the other. Have students label each of the colors WARM or COOL according to their location.
When this discussion is over, have students write their names on the center back of their creations and then cut them out. Once they are cut out with their names on the back, have them hang their creations on a bulletin board. A basic Color label on the board should be sufficient. The students get to display their work as well as observe the work of others in the classes.
Use the rubric that is included on the assignment sheet to score the color wheels.
