Introduction (5 minutes):
Begin the lesson by gathering the students in a circle and showing them a color wheel. Explain that colors are all around us and that we will be exploring different colors through art.
Activity 1: Color Mixing (15 minutes):
Divide the students into small groups and provide each group with primary colored paints (red, blue, yellow) and white paint. Instruct them to mix the primary colors together to create secondary colors (orange, green, purple). Encourage them to experiment and observe the changes in colors as they mix.
Activity 2: Color Collage (20 minutes):
Give each student a piece of construction paper and ask them to cut out different shapes from colorful construction paper. Instruct them to create a collage by gluing the shapes onto their paper, using different colors to make it vibrant and visually appealing.
Activity 3: Colorful Creatures (15 minutes):
Provide each student with a blank sheet of paper and markers. Instruct them to draw and color their own imaginative creatures using as many colors as they want. Encourage them to think creatively and use their imagination.
Conclusion (5 minutes):
Gather the students together and have a discussion about the different colors they explored and the art they created. Display their artwork around the classroom to celebrate their creativity.
Assessment will be conducted through observation during the activities, checking for understanding during discussions, and reviewing the students' artwork. The teacher will assess if the students can identify and name different colors, understand color mixing, and express their creativity through art.
