Thinking & Reasoning
This activity helps to reinforce the Color Wheel Introduction assignment in which students were shown the relationship between primary and secondary colors. This assignment takes the color wheel one necessary step farther and introduces the concept of tertiary colors.
Please be familiar with all the information included on the Color Note outline.
Students should have a brief understanding of the primary and secondary colors.
Have students take out their notes for this unit and instruct them to take notes from the note outline overhead as you discuss the information. Go over all information on the note outline making sure to answer questions as you go.
Hand out the Color Wheel Project assignment sheet. Read over the directions as a class. Stress the importance of creativity to the outcome of this assignment. It is ranked as high (point values) as having all the primary, secondary, and tertiary colors included. Show examples of correct and creative wheels. Give students the remainder of the class period to complete the assignment.
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, maybe only asking them to color a color wheel outline with their colored pencils, following the labeled sections.
Once you have corrected and returned the completed color wheels, have students write their names on the center back of their creation and then have them cut it out. Once it is cut out with their name on the back, have them hang their creation on a bulletin board that you have created. A basic "Color" label on the board should be sufficient, and the students get to display their work as well as observe the work of others in the classes.
Refer to the rubric on the attached assignment sheet for grading breakdown.
